The series on Depression and Suicide was translated into Spanish in order to assist Latinos in early detection of depressive symptoms that can lead to suicide. The stressful circumstances around immigration and deportation threats affect the Latino community in the USA. The viewing audience for the English language series found the personal stories of our guests helpful in recognizing the way a treatable illness like depression can begin to affect mood, personality, and the ability to study or to work.
If not detected and treated effectively, the risk of suicide increases. The series offers viewers an opportunity to see and hear men and women talk about their experience with their own depression or that of a loved one.
