Depression & Anxiety Disorders
What drew me to the show immediately was its themes and message. I live in a community where depression and anxiety disorders are at an all time high; in our generation it could even be equated to an epidemic. Having personally experienced (and in many ways overcome) these things has certainly left a personal mark on this show for me.
Despite the widespread nature of these disorders, not everyone knows how to seek help. There are many prejudices in place surrounding various treatments and I feel as though there may be some serious misconceptions about what it's like to suffer from an anxiety disorder.
This show provides an emotional viewpoint and will hopefully educate those who have not suffered from a mental illness; bringing them to a clearer understanding, and will hopefully educate those who do suffer from one as to their options and how to seek help.
