New HBO Doc MY DEPRESSION Wants Us to Open Up

“Depression. Anxiety. Emotions!!! We’ve been talking about all of them on Smart Girls a lot lately because frankly, we think it’s time to put an end to the stigma around mental health. Another Smart Girl who is looking to end the stigma around depression is author, musician, and all around artistic lady Elizabeth Swados. After writing a picture book titled My Depression, Swados has now turned it into an animated short documentary called My Depression (The Up and Down and Up of It) which will be making its debut on HBO next month.  Through inventive animation and music, My Depression explores Swados’s lifelong struggle with depression and her efforts to keep her “cloud,” as she calls it, at bay.”
