This is a well performed look at mental illness in 5 tales. The first tale involves Lucy (Brittany Snow) a law student who battles schizophrenia. The second tale is about a woman with bipolar disorder who is an embarrassment to her child (Sarah Hyland) growing up. The third story intersects with the first one as Allison (Sofia Vassilieva) must face her mentally ill sister. The fourth tale concerns Eddie (Mitch Rouse), a comedian who is clinically depressed. The fifth story takes us the full circle of tear jerking hope as a PTSD victim (Jennifer Hudson) needs an attorney to help her gain custody of her child and get the help she needs.

The theme is that mental illness is a disease that can be controlled with therapy and medication. Hollywood pulls out all the stops by having a-listers both in front of and behind the camera. If you love a good Lifetime type film, this one goes above and beyond.

No F-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Wonderful Stigma Buster tool
Insight from individuals living with a mental illness changes prospective for those who are not ill.
It also shows that with treatment and medication there is recovery and possibility of ability to live, laugh and love for all who live with these illnesses.
A must see then share.....

As a physician, the stigma of mental illness continue to encourage patients to avoid medical care. Mental illness should be viewed no differently than any OTHER medical illness. The story of the people who were stricken down, yet recovered is extremely important. With proper treatment, successful outcomes are not only attainable, but should reflect the norm. Sadly we have not made much progress. Even my relatives think mental angst is a license to mistreat and steal money.

Amazing! Great views from all sides, people going through the illness, and the families trying to understand them. Recommend showing to Health classes in school.

Some stories are from the point of view of the person with the disorder and some are from the point of view of their family members. The stories are too brief to give a sense of all the facets and implications of each disease, but it's an admirable effort to show some of the characteristics of each disorder and humanize the "crackpots." I suffer from depression and particularly appreciated the story of how depression impacts a marriage. Fortunately the spouse without depression doesn't end the marriage because of the other one's mental illness, as happened to me.

My students are shown this film in relationship to their study of psychological disorders. This film stimulates discussion and provides opportunity for
non-judgmental comments. The students are able to see how such problems affect many people in one's circle of influence.

The movie was in segments similar to a documentary but presented as short films. The acting and directing were great. For anyone studying mental diseases, this CD is a valuable one to add to your collection. It includes bipolar, chronic depression, PTSD and schizophrenia. I especially enjoyed the segment on bipolar which clearly shows the two different aspects of the disease. It shows the dangers to self and others and the stigma of the affliction if untreated.
