In this section you can find out about the experience of depression by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.

In recent times depression and bipolar disorder, which includes episodes of mania, have come to be considered as separate, yet related, conditions, mainly because the treatments required for each are different. In this project we have included experiences of both.

Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 38 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as childhood, therapies, self-help and impact on work and family.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
