"Is there a cure? There is no cure, but we can still do something about it."

Living with Sasha is a documentary on the life of Kirstin Segreaves, a fifteen year old living with Major Depression and Atypical Psychosis. The story tells how she managed to survive during a time when life was - and is! - hectic. Suicidal friends and problems at home aren't the only things she has to worry about. Along with all the issues a teen has to go through, she faces demons inside that will challenge her will to live and stay with her for a life time.

About the Movie

"Mental illness is more common than you may think, and there are kids out there living just like me. Being fifteen and living with a disorder that I don't understand makes me so frustrated I want to cry. I used to feel alone, and I don't want others to go through the same things I did. That's why one day I took my iPod and started recording."

-Kirstin S.

"Living with Sasha" is my way of spreading awareness to people about how serious depression and mental illness is. It goes through my life, how I grew up, the people I know, and what I've been through. Sasha is the name I gave to my illness shortly after being diagnosed. But it doesn't stop the true terror of having an illness that threatens to ruin - and end - your life.
