This video takes a journey inside the human brain to see the connection between drugs, human brain cells and depression. What is a drug? Do drugs include alcohol and prescription medications as well as illicit drugs such as amphetamines and cannabis? Can people who use drugs get depressed? Or do depressed people turn to drugs in an attempt to make them feel better? Why are drugs known to be mood altering?
What’s the physiological connection between drugs and depression? Find the answers to these questions and more in the Drugs and Depression DVD produced by 3Dme Creative Studio and distributed by the Australian Lions Drug Awareness Foundation.
