Beyond the Blues: Child and Youth Depression

Synopsis
Statistics reveal that depression in children and young people 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 documentary traces the journey of depression, from early signs and symptoms, to assessment, diagnosis and treatment. 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.
