Dr Jamie Wells, Director of Medicine at the American Council on Science and Health, talks about the New Zealand Chief Censor’s suicide concerns over Hollywood hit film, A Star is Born ,and why it strikes a chord about issues such as addiction, depression, anxiety and internal demons.

Wells says it may be a good thing that the movie brings up such topics and the movie has so much depth it will go far to reduce the stigma about mental health.
