KCET ‘Life & Times’ Special Focuses on Depression in Southern California
KCET's "Life & Times" on Wednesday aired a special with three segments examining depression in Southern California.
The first segment examines the treatment of depression using electro convulsive therapy, a "more effective" form of electroshock therapy (McDermott, "Life & Times," KCET, 1/4).
The second segment examines barriers to mental health care access for Latinos, who are often reluctant to admit they are depressed (Louie, "Life & Times," KCET, 1/4).
The third segment examines the societal myths surrounding parenthood and treatments for post-partum depression (Cuevas, "Life & Times," KCET, 1/4).
The complete transcript and audio of the program in RealPlayer will be available online after the broadcast.
