Film Screening: My Depression
Did your know that numerous research studies suggest that between a quarter and a third of students meet criteria for anxiety or depressive illness during their college experience? The Wellness Center/Counseling Services marks Depression Awareness Month by showing the HBO documentary My Depression, a critically-acclaimed half-hour film based on Elizabeth Swados’ personal story of her lifelong struggle with depression. Elizabeth—a successful Broadway composer, writer and director—uses her talents of music and storytelling to share her story and help others who may be struggling with emotional health conditions like depression. The documentary will be followed by short panel discussion and an opportunity for questions.
