Beyond the Blues: Child and Youth Depression
Documentary about depression, available free on streaming video. "Statistics reveal that depression in children and youth is on the rise. In fact, it 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 compelling documentary traces the journey of depression, from early signs and symptoms, to assessment, diagnosis and treatment. The documentary also helps shatter some stereotypes. 2004, 56 min 30 s Directed by Maureen Palmer Produced by Sharon Bartlett Maria LeRose"
