CityNews – Students from Montfort College have won the Creative Media Award at the Panasonic Kid Witness News Contest 2017 for a short film made to raise awareness about the tragedy of depression.

 

The Kid Witness News (KWN) is a global video education program supported by Panasonic, with aims of boosting creativity and communication skills and fostering teamwork through video production by children at the elementary and secondary school levels. As part of the KWN Global Summit 2017 “Create Our Future Together”, this year the awards ceremony was held on August 4th at Panasonic Center, Japan with 26 candidates from 18 countries.

 

The film titled Dead End was based on a true story about Jomtian Jansomrag which was originally written on her Facebook account and her blog under the pen-name Lulla.

Back when TRUE Visions offered HBO Red I saw a good Japanese movie about a women dealing with her husbands major depression through art work. She could not really make it as a cartoonist, but her series won great international acclaim. I wish I could remember the name. Something like "my xxxx has depression"

With all due respect, there's not very much useful information in this article about depression, with the exception of "raising awareness".
Depression is a medical condition. Sometimes its cause can be determined, sometimes it can't. Depressed people don't need to "simply cheer up"; it doesn't work that way. Many depressed people simply need companionship and support.
