Comments about PBS Depression: Out of the Shadows DVD:

An informative documentary on depression, with a focus on de-stigmatizing this mental illness. I thought it was well-done.

I've been showing it to adults in a day treatment program and have heard positive responses. In addition, the video has sparked questions for discussion.

Good DVD for psychoeducation

By di Bofi

Comments about PBS Depression: Out of the Shadows DVD:

I've been a therapist for over ten years and have treated depression often. This video would make a good companion to the psychoeducation of the patient because it does a good job in normalizing the symptoms rather than pathologizing mental illness.

On the other hand, there was one person in the video that was taking a curious combination of drugs that made it seem daunting and perhaps counter-productive to the lay person thus sending a mixed message about the effectiveness of treatment. I hope his health care professional saw that video too.

Great Understanding

By Sophie

from Portland, Maine

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Depression: Out of the Shadows DVD:

Viewed this DVD in hopes of understanding the illness of depression. Found this program very
informative, educating, stirring, unsettling, and engaging. I learned so much and think this is a tremendously important and valuable production for all to view. It offered hope and insight to pathways for treatment and the possibilities they can bring. After watching this DVD I feel a much greater understanding of depression/BiPolar and felt optimistic for such diagnosis and treatment within my own family. I rented this DVD from the local library (plan to purchase for my own) in addition to Cry For Help.. I preferred Depression out of the shadows over the two as it covered real situations and introduced mental health providers and facilities as well as "break through" trials of treatment. Worth 5 stars.
