The Pain of Depression: A Journey Through the Darkness tells the compelling stories of individuals who suffered from clinical depression, a medical illness, which affects more than 20 million Americans each year. Depression affects people of all backgrounds and walks of life, including many famous people throughout history. This film, broadcast on PBS stations nationally, profiled everyday people who experienced depression and tells their stories through their own words.

The documentary also explores the different ways depression can manifest itself, including both emotionally and physically. Individuals may not receive appropriate treatment because the physical impact of depression can mask the illness. The film also examines how family, friends and communities are impacted by the depression of their loved ones.

Throughout The Pain of Depression: A Journey Through the Darkness nationally recognized experts discuss the cutting-edge  research and theories of depression: its neurophysiology, broad range of symptoms, possible treatments and the role of family and friends in an individual’s recovery.

It is our hope that these stories encourage anyone suffering from depression to get help.
