Vidya Gargote knows that there are millions suffering silently with depression. Having struggled with her own, she now shares her collection of poetry “MUTE: Poems That Saved My Life! Poems by Vidya Gargote during Her Journey Battling with Depression” (published by Balboa Press) to help others overcome their own depression.

Written as journal therapy, the collection contains Gargote’s writings as she worked to overcome depression through her craft and through her own spiritual growth. The poems speak directly to the soul to help readers get past their negative thought patterns and feel empowered.

Running throughout the collection is Gargote’s story, tying all of the poems together with one warm and easy-to-read narrative that she hopes will allow readers “…to take away that they too can deal with their depression by writing their thoughts and expressing themselves to check for potential negative thinking, thus correct(ing) their thought process.”
