Product Description

This gripping educational film explores the connection between concussion and suicidal depression - a little known medical condition called Post Concussion Syndrome (PCS). PCS is possibly the most under-diagnosed, yet widespread condition affecting young people today. PCS masks itself by appearing as many other symptoms including the inablilty to learn, abuse of drugs and alcohol and the loss of motivation or joy.

In the "Hidden Epidemic" medical experts discuss the natre of PCS, while pro athletes like Matt Hasselbeck and Johnny Damon describe their experiences with PCS. Harvard's Chris Nowinski, author of "Head Games, Footballs Concussion Crisis" tells his story, including the death of a teammate on the field after a second concussion.

Woven throughout the film is a dramatization featuring actress Dalenna Thomas. Dalenna's performance is especially touching because she experienced a concussionin high school and like so many others , became depressed which led to suicidal thoughts. Everyday thousnads of young people live with anxiety and depression and have no idea why, or how to get better. Since suicide is now the third leading cause of death among teens, and an enormous problem among our returning Veteran population, the Post Concussion Syndrome link to depression is a story that must be told.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
