Some studies say that more than twenty-five million Americans suffer from depression each year. When left untreated it can be a deadly disease.
Depression is more than just sadness. It is all-encompassing, intense, and unrelenting despondency. It overshadows us with feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness. It makes us feel empty and fills us with despair.
Depression it is not a weakness of character, it is a disease just as diabetes or arthritis is. Embarrassment or shame often prevents those who need help from getting it.
The goal of this show is to educate others in the hopes that those suffering will recognize the signs and get the help they need. The message is that suffering is unnecessary. Depression is a highly treatable disorder; those who have treatment lead perfectly normal lives.
