Depression is the most common mental illness amongst adults. It's characterised by feelings of hopelessness and numbness. We all know what it's like to feel depressed, but to suffer from depression is another thing entirely. In this program, we meet two sufferers and find out first-hand what it's like to experience the journey through depression and recovery. We speak to Professor Graham D. Burrows, Chairman of the Mental Health Foundation of Australia and other industry professionals, to examine the unique characteristics the disease presents and the importance of ongoing support for sufferers. A moving insight into this often misunderstood disease. 21 minutes.
