Today is World Mental Health Day. To mark this occasion, we are hosting our first video. Our friends over at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families sent us this phenomenal animated video on the topic of depression.
"In April 2015, seven young people who had been to a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) for help with their depression came together, with the aim of making a short, animated film about what it is like to suffer from depression as a teenager.
Out of the workshop, 'Facing Shadows' was created: a short, animated film, about their experiences of depression and going to therapy. See also 'Facing Shadows: Behind the Scenes', and our companion film, 'Journey through the Shadows', about the experience of being the parent of a child with depression."
