The producers of In Focus with Martin Sheen are pleased to announce an upcoming report exploring mood disorders. These illnesses are getting more attention from a medical community more sensitive to diseases of the mind.
In Focus with Martin Sheen is an independently produced television program airing in markets around the country on public television. The show is hosted by the legendary actor Martin Sheen. Mr. Sheen is a veteran of nearly a half century in the entertainment industry. He is also a noted activist for several important causes impacting our society. In Focus Martin Sheen explores important issues facing the healthcare industry including how mental illness is getting a renewed focus.
Of the 20 percent of adults that suffer some form of depression at least once a year, half will experience symptoms more than once. In people with prior psychiatric issues, depression can often lead to more serious mood disorders. Mental illness can also be half of a dangerous mix with substance abuse where one condition seemingly fuels the other. Physicians and psychiatrists are working to help people with mental illness using a combination of therapy and medication that is showing results.
The producers of In Focus with Martin Sheen are expecting to have the report ready for broadcast later this year.
