Teen depression is very common and yet it still carries a stigma. In this documentary, several youth share how environmental factors including school, immigration and the pandemic, contributed to their depression. This film also explores treatments and access to mental healthcare. Ultimately, we want other teens to know that depression is not weakness and that we need each other more than we think.
