My Depression. The Up and Down and Up of It

 

 "People with depression know well how others can react, assuming the sufferer is simply lazy or grouchy or scatterbrained or selfish. The main character here is swarmed by such people, and then by the resulting self-doubt, fear of being out in public and more. That’s the spiral that leads to “Suicide Mobile” (written by Mr. Wachtenheim), but right about then, the film’s narrative shifts subtly. The first 20 minutes of this half-hour gem seem aimed at the world at large, an effort to explain the condition to those who know little about it. But the last 10 have a different audience: They’re addressed directly to people struggling as Ms. Swados did, urging them to seek help and holding out hope of light at the end of the tunnel." – The New York Times
