Director Statement

‘Me, Myself & Her’ explores the overwhelming effect of depression and the impact it can have on every aspect of a sufferer's life. The character of Depression depicted as an annoying house guest who just won't leave you alone is a metaphor that can create empathy with people with and without the disease. Mia’s boyfriend Tom represents the majority of people who don’t understand the toll it takes on the smallest tasks, like getting out of bed or enjoying a TV programme. The T-shirts worn with euphemisms for depression add an inside joke for people in the know, as well as the black tears on her cheek to reference the sad clown.
As the series progresses Mia becomes more frustrated with Depression, but also almost used to her being around. Like an irritating rash that keeps coming back, Mia just has to keep scratching.
Suffering from depression can be such an isolating experience, so these episodes can hopefully help make people feel understood and less lonely in their struggle. Using humour to cope with serious issues on the surface may look like minimising, but is actually a really effective way to bring people together and help cope with such an all consuming force.
