The Mayo Clinic describes Depression as...
...a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called "major depressive disorder" or "clinical depression," it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn't worth living.
More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn't a weakness and you can't simply "snap out" of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don't get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychotherapy or both.
And our Depression Rabbit tries to capture some of these ideas through its blue color, stubby limbs (indicating loss of interest), broken heart motif, and round shape (for that feeling that you can barely even roll around much less walk). While this might not exactly mirror your experience with depression (everyone is different!), Depression Rabbit can still provide soft cuddles when you most need them.
IMPORTANT NOTE Regarding the design of our mental health-related Plushie Dreadfuls. We take the topics of mental health and mental health awareness seriously. That's why our design team only creates plushies related to mental health issues with which they have direct experience. In cases where our team does not have direct experience, we assemble an external team of experts to help guide our creative process. In addition, we use Crowd Design to engage a wide range of voices via platforms like Instagram and Facebook. We gather and respond to feedback from our audience - many of whom have direct experience with the mental health issues we're exploring. And while we strive to represent as many aspects of a particular mental health issue as possible while avoiding stereotypical symptoms, we hope you understand that plush toys as an artistic medium do limit the full expression of a particular issue to those things that can be crafted in fabric and stitching.

Review from my wife.
My husband bought me the depression bunny. I have terrible depression and I like to think that when I snuggle him he absorbs some of that. He is a little hard to snuggle being so round but I think he's perfect. However I am looking forward to getting the next release. This little guy also sits on my bed with my love bunny and my others. He gets extra snuggles when I feel especially depressed. He looks so sad and I just want to snuggle his sad away and that's good for me when my depression is bad. These are excellent quality stuffies and beautifully made. I absolutely love them.
Just plain nice and cuddly, perfect for when you need some serious snuggle.
