What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

Health as I See It: Documentary Review: More than Sad

More Than Sad, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, 2009.
This is a collection of two videos.  The first is a general awareness video More than Sad: (teen depression).  This presents four young people who have been going through depression and talks about their specific issues, and how they dealt with depression.  10 to 15 percent of youth will have depression during a school year.  However, most will not get treatment.  This video focuses on reducing stigma about treatment, giving examples of how treatment has helped others, and shows the results of the treatment.

The second video takes off where there first video left off: More than Sad: (Suicide Prevention).  It is more geared for teachers and how to recognize when someone needs help.  In addition to following the youth from the first video, this video also adds several testimonials from teachers who intervened with students who they recognized as needing help.  This video gives examples of when a teacher might intervene.  The teachers had positive results and some even later got thank-you's from the students.
