This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Health

 

A three-part documentary series which highlights stories of individuals with mental illnesses who have found themselves in a dysfunctional prison system rather than getting proper care

Today, more than 2.4 million Americans are incarcerated in prisons and jails. Over 1 million of those inmates - more than half of the entire prison population - suffer from some form of mental illness.

This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Health 
is a three-part documentary series which highlights stories of individuals with mental illnesses who have found themselves in a dysfunctional prison system rather than getting proper care. Through personal interviews with community leaders, city officials, and formerly incarcerated individuals, this series not only shows the inhumanity of putting those with mental illness behind bars, but offers real-world, cost-saving alternatives.
