Bedlam PBS Documentary

PBS online is airing the documentary Bedlam on the mental health crisis in America.

At the end of this blog entry I’ll give the link to the website so that you can watch this graphic yet ultimately hopeful account.

Decide for yourself what to think after viewing the video.

More power to the Black Lives Matter founder Patrice whose story is told in this documentary.

In fact the Black Lives Matter were instrumental in fighting for mental health justice.

They protested in the street and caused the LA government to halt building a jail to house people with mental illnesses.

The mental health justice activists had the funds diverted to treatment not criminalization.

Seeing this empowering film I’ve decided to donate money to Black Lives Matter.
