Behind My Happy Face

Teen depression is very common and yet it still carries a stigma. In this documentary, several youth share how environmental factors including school, immigration, and the pandemic, contributed to their depression. This film also explores treatments and access to mental healthcare. Ultimately, we want other teens to know that depression is not weakness and that we need each other more than we think. This film was created by students in Educational Video Center's Youth Documentary Workshop in the Spring of 2021.
