A Dangerous Son
One in ten American children suffer from a severe emotional disturbance, and over 17 million have experienced a psychiatric disorder. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus, this eye-opening film focuses on three families, each struggling to find appropriate treatment for their child. Featuring interviews with mental-health experts and advocates--including Dr. Thomas Insel, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health, and Andrew Solomon, author of "Far from the Tree"--the film highlights the cycle of counselor visits, medications, hospitalizations and encounters with law enforcement.
