The Mental Health Channel has a series called The Inside Story that profiles people who “reveal their mental health diagnoses and their paths to overcome them.” So far the program has covered panic disorders, bipolar 1, and bipolar 2. In the most recent episode, which covers clinical depression, the show profiled Thor Harris, best known as the drummer of Swans. Below you can watch the short documentary where Harris talks about depression and how his art has helped him. It’s an incredible, inspiring video and really worth watching if you feel you or someone close to you might be suffering from depression. Watch it below.

You can hear Thor Harris on two albums this year: Swans’ To Be Kind (review here) and Ben Frost’s A U R O R A (interview here). They are two of the best albums of 2014 so far.
