More than 264 million people worldwide of all ages suffer from depression. And depression is a leading cause of disability worldwide. Those 264 million people amount for 3.4% of the world’s population.

Recent research suggests that depression doesn’t spring from simply having too much or too little of certain brain chemicals.

There are many possible causes of depression, including faulty mood regulation by the brain, genetic vulnerability, stressful life events, medications, and medical problems.

The US has the highest rate of depression. More than 17.3 million Americans live with depression. For Americans, and people worldwide, access to mental health care through insurance is a significant barrier.

In this documentary, we listen to Jake, a young person living with depression. He embarked on a journey to manage his mental health illness in a new way, through exercise, sharing, and the great outdoors. He has now walked more than 2,000 miles around the UK, blogging and vlogging about his experience.
