The Truth About Depression is a documentary film initially screened by BBC in 2013 that uncovers the hidden issues concerning depression. Host and radio star of Northern Ireland Stephen Nolan attempts to seek for a better understanding of this sickness by meeting and interviewing people who claim to have persistently combatted it for a long time, further exploring on the possibly fatal circumstances of this lifestyle illness.
The documentary film is a careful and meticulous blend of direct accounts of depression from people scientifically-verified to have the disorder as well as scientific principles and theories, both purposive for giving insight to the nature of depression. Without going too much into detail, it also seeks to give a brief overview on a potentially life-saving treatment regimen approved by the scientific community. Transparent, cold, hard, brash, and straightforward, this documentary film is designed to scrupulously define the all-too-relatable sickness that is depression.
