Comedian stars in free film about depression next Tuesday at library

Provided to the Tribune

Because it is Mental Health Awareness Month, NAMI invites the community to a special film about depression. “Side by Side: A Journey With Depression” is a funny look at serious survival by comedian Brian Wetzel.

The film will be shown free of charge starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library, 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd.

Wetzel was a professional stand-up comedian whose career and personal life were absorbed by his struggle with clinical depression and subsequent addiction. Bringing his sense of humor and experience together, Wetzel takes his audience on a journey of laughter, painful truth and, finally, hope. By walking side by side with the affliction, he finds a way to keep surviving, keep learning and keep living.
