Parents, teens, advocates and providers share their personal stories about the impact on their lives because of a fragmented system for children's mental health care. While the documentary is set in Connecticut, this is a national crisis and one we experience first-hand in our community. Kids spending night after night in the emergency room because of the lack of psychiatric beds in the state; waits to get an appointment for services; and a shortage of child psychiatrists. All of this - combined with the raw emotion of accepting the fact that their child is likely facing a lifetime of medication and therapy. This film and the panel that will follow will help us explore the state of children's mental health care in the Capital region.
