What strikes me most about Harmon's tweet storm is his point to tell people to actively deal with their depression with output. Do something about it. Be active with it.

It made me think of Patton Oswalt's touching Facebook post on the soul-crushing effects of grief and its ultimate uselessness.

So as difficult as it may be, when you're depressed or suffering from some pretty awful feelings, it seems like the healthiest thing to do, like Harmon says, is to do something about it. Seriously, if you're reading this and think you may be depressed, get help. You're worth it!
