Misunderstood Epidemic: Depression Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Thu, Aug 30, 2012 -- 7:00 AM

This program explores the difficulties faced by those coping with varying levels of depression. 12 Americans from all walks of life explain, in their own words, the realities of living with depression: the symptoms, thoughts of suicide, the stress it puts on families and relationships, the loss of ability to work, the stigma associated with it, and the pros and cons of different treatment methods. Their compelling first-person accounts, along with engaging interviews with their family members and friends, reveal how this bio-chemical imbalance cuts across racial, ethnic and socio-economic lines.
