gleeThe hit Fox television show Glee is not just for musical/show choir fanatics. Sure, the singing and performances are amazing to watch, but the main theme of each show usually deals with a much more serious issue. 

In fact, in the recent episode Born this Way one of the characters is diagnosed with a mental disorder and the scene about how she in confronted with this brings light to some common reactions and misconceptions.

At Families for Depression Awareness, we strive to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding depressive disorders. We do this in various ways because we believe it is so crucial to dispell any misunderstandings around mental illness. Thank you Glee for shedding light on such an important issue. 

Watch the episode here. (This scene occurs at the 46:30 mark).
