Reviews and Awards


Video Rating Guide
July 1992

"Four Stars."

"These episodes flow smoothly with a good mix of interview and background video on the highlighted patients with mood disorders. Graphics help to illustrate the sections of the brain being discussed..."

Library Journal
July 1992

"...mental health jargon is limited, and the use of real people who are facing the reality of mental illness serves to heighten viewer interest. Modules do not propagandize specific theories in causal factors or treatment modalities but promote a more eclectic view and approach to dealing with these disorders. Recommended."
