How does living with serious mental illness impact the individual, their family and society?

Watch the trailer

The documentary-in-progress Piece of Mind explores the hushed public health crisis of untreated serious mental illness mirrored in three viewpoints — a mother and two sisters besieged by cognitive and systemic barriers to care for their loved ones, and a man living with bipolar disorder.  The film weaves the pursuit of normalcy and comprehensive care, and both good and bad encounters with law enforcement asking — What are humane solutions to treatment before tragedy?  This timely film by Emmy-nominated director, Sheila Ganz, has a sister living with schizophrenia and felt this story was “staring me in the face.”
