Here are some of the highlights from this documentary: 



Have you experienced it yourself? Only then do you understand what a depression is

Only those who have experienced it themselves know how paralyzing a depression can be.

Chances are 1 in 4 that depression will hit you at some point in life. It is amazing to think about how many of us suffer from depression, and yet it is so common to feel a need to hide it. Why? Because of the stigma. People with depression are labeled as weak. Some people even go so far as to believe that depression does not exist. In other words, not all of us recognize depression as a real illness.

This film seeks - behind the stigmas and myths - to find the truth about depression.


The truth about depression


- Every day I have experienced death through my depression

Every day I have experienced death through my depression, says one of those interviewed in the film.

The documentary elaborates on what depression really is. How does it feel to have a depression? How do the leading experts in the field explain what depression is? What happens in the brain when you are suffering from depression? What treatment methods are available?

These are some of the topics touched on in this hyper-current documentary on a topic where the general knowledge of the population is remarkably low.
