Going Sane: The State of Mental Health Care in America

A series of cracks in the mental health system makes it almost impossible for parents to find good care for their children. We have a multiplicity of treatments available for everything from depression to OCD to psychosis, but what actually works? When filmmaker Josh Sabey’s sister was diagnosed with anorexia nervosa, his family provided the best care possible, spent thousands of dollars, but saw no improvement for many years. Sabey became determined to help other families avoid wasting time, money, and lives.

Hidden Pictures: The Underexposed World of Global Mental Health

In award-winning HIDDEN PICTURES, Ruston takes us on her journey to uncover personal stories in India, China, South Africa, France, and the US. What emerge are scenes of profound frustration, moments of true compassion, and unexpected insights. Ultimately we witness the force of change that individuals are bringing about, including actress Glenn Close's movement to fight stigma.

Natural Approaches to Mental Health

Holistic medicine also offers many avenues for responding to issues of mental health and well-being. Here, explore research on the role of nutrition and nutrient deficiencies in depression and bipolar disorder. Consider holistic approaches to treating depression, including the specific uses of diet, exercise, herbal remedies, and light therapy.

My Year of Living Mindfully

In the midst of a global mental health crisis, millions of people have turned to mindfulness. But does it actually make us happier and healthier? In a world-first experiment, journalist Shannon Harvey recruited a team of scientists to put mindful meditation to the test. But what began as a year-long self-experiment soon became a life-changing experience.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

In this program we'll learn the connection between anxiety and depression, the habits that contribute to anxiety that you can break and what to tell yourself the next time you are depressed. Anxiety is the most common mental health disorder in the U.S. affecting forty million adults. About half of those that are diagnosed with anxiety disorders also suffer from depression. Experiencing occasional anxiety and worry is normal but people with anxiety disorders experience excessive and persistent fear about everyday situations. These anxiety disorders are often inherited and occur by faulty circuits in the brain that control fear.
