Superscript: When you think of life with Major Depressive Disorder, or MDD, what do you see?

Voice over: When you think of life with Major Depressive Disorder, or MDD, what do you see? People may think they know exactly what MDD looks like. But the truth is that MDD looks different for everyone because everyone experiences it differently. To get a more authentic picture of MDD, we have to look at not just the disorder, but also some people living with it. Because when a patient works with their doctor to find the treatment plan that’s right for them, it may have a noticeable impact on their MDD. That’s what I want other patients to know.
