Still image from The Other Side Of Blue: The Truth About Teenage Depression

There is a widespread belief that depression in adolescence and young adulthood is normal-that moodiness and "the blues" are almost a rite of passage. To some extent this may be true, yet it dangerously masks the fact that eight to ten percent of teens suffer from true clinical depression. Young people with undiagnosed depression may appear irritable rather than sad. They may be angry, argumentative, or even violent, may get in trouble in school or with the law, may self-medicate with alcohol and drugs, and, in all too many cases, may attempt suicide, and a tragically large number of such attempts succeed. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box, (3) subtitled expanded description.
