My 11 year old son made this stop-motion video about depression. It’s a great little video, in my biased opinion, and a shameless plug for our mood charting software. The marketing talent is getting young these days! Here is the synopsis: Buddy has depression. It’s not debilitating, but serious enough that he has no joy in life. He’s not so much a black dog; more a brown dog if you like. Buddy has read some books that have helped him with his depression, but the one called “Taming the Black Dog” falls on him, compounding his woes. He gets on his computer and uses the Optimism web application. (Ahem, where are the screen images?) The app helps and he’s feeling more positive about overcoming depression. For some reason he is now reading Napolean Hill – what’s that about, Buddy? – and climbs back into his box with a little more hope than before.
