Depression has increased by one-third in the past 30 years. Untreated depression costs a teenager in many ways: lost educational opportunities, lost social opportunities and lost time. Through the personal stories of three young people, this compelling documentary traces the journey of depression, from early signs and symptoms, to assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Bipolar disorder is also covered.
CBT is one of the treatments used.
It also helps to shatter some stereotypes, and sheds light on the current situation, offering practical tools for understanding the problems and knowing where to find solutions. Depressed kids don’t just have a bad attitude, they have an illness, which is treatable.

The imagery and film quality may not be to modern standards but is useful for historical use.
