About the Program

We'll follow the stories of local people in the community and hear how depression has affected them and treatments available. Noted medical experts will explain how depression manifests itself, what's known about its causes, and what the risk factors are. In addition, we'll learn about the stigma that still plagues this disease, and how both patients and families cope with it.
