“CRAZY is a beautiful and poignant description of a young man’s struggles with the mental health system. CRAZY does not offer answers but lovingly, and with great sensitivity and searing honesty, explores the challenges facing an individual who is coming to grips with a mental illness. I would strongly encourage any person with a mental illness- and anyone who cares about and wants to understand that person’s experience - to watch CRAZY.” 

-Elyn Saks: Mental health expert, Founder & Director, The Saks Institute for Mental Health Law Policy and Ethics, MacArthur Foundation Fellowship winner

 

“A powerful and important film that will prompt viewers to think deeply about society’s “forced treatment” of people diagnosed with psychiatric disorders, and whether it violates their fundamental rights as citizens. This film asks the audience to see and feel this question from the perspective of the person being “treated,” and it makes for an unsettling experience indeed.”

- Robert Whitaker: Author, Anatomy of an Epidemic, award winning medical journalist 

 

“Lise Zumwalt’s documentary is a powerful indictment of the routine use of force in our behavioral healthcare system. An honest film without easy answers, CRAZY exposes the ethical failure of treatments that leave patients, families -- and also professionals -- without real options or meaningful support.”

-Will Hall: Counselor, founding member of Hearing Voices Network USA

 

“Courageous. Honest. Moving. Everyone impacted by the mental health system should watch “CRAZY.”

-David Oaks: Mental health rights leader, Founder of MindFreedom International.
