We recently finished a 23-minute film, "Tremors in the System: the help you want or the help you get", with Marj Berthold, about her experiences in the mental health system: Ronald Bassman says about the film: "Tremors in the System does what excellent films do best - it helps us understand by inspiring us to feel the struggles and the emotions that are portrayed on screen. The viewer is exposed to the frustrations of being a person living with an extensive psychiatric history who is unable to attain credibility despite all her attempts to communicate her very genuine concerns.
I recommend this documentary to stimulate discussion for schools and community groups interested in gaining more understanding of mental illness" Ronald Bassman, Ph.D., author of A Fight to Be: A Psychologist's Experience from Both Sides of the Locked Door.
We are currently developing a feature documentary about the mental health system and issues around forced treatment.
