Men Get Depression

State of the Art, Inc. has produced an HDTV broadcast special Men Get Depression. It is the centerpiece of a national campaign on male depression to increase awareness of depression, reduce stigma, and prevent suicide. The documentary is dramatically structured in four acts: 1) Putting a name on it. Men awakening to awareness that something is gravely wrong that they can’t control. 2) Not just me, but also those around me. Exploration of depression’s collateral damage, pain and injury to relationships. 3) I need help and it’s okay to ask for it. Acceptance that help is available and personal accounts of experiences with both medication and psychotherapy. 4) Therapy can work, but requires discipline. How therapy has changed men’s lives and their relationships.
