Expressing depression through ballet

A film has been made to help explain depression through ballet.

Dancer Francesca Hayward teamed up with mental health charity MIND to make the film "Sink or Swim" in a bid to express what depression feels like.

Ms Haywood said: "For a lot of young people depression is probably something they don't understand."

She said friends and family had been affected by depression and that "a key moment in helping them through difficult times was actually just trying to understand it for myself".
