This is a documentary film about depression, available now on DVD. There is a tendency afoot today to blame the epidemic sweep of clinical depression in the US on bad genes or screwy brain chemistry. But what if the causes of depression, suicide, or other mental illnesses do not emanate from the individual?
This artful documentary film brings six people together for three days of emotional, and at times heated, discussion about the sources of their despair. Intermixed are hard-to-find facts which challenge the psychiatric industry’s claims that depression is a biological disorder.
Fundamentally about empowerment and the resilience of the human spirit, this surprisingly inspirational new movie will change the way you think about “normal.” The website also includes articles and links.
