This was a well researched and produced documentary about youth mental illness with heartbreaking and vulnerable testimonies from the youth who live it. I was overwhelmed with their poise and willingness to be so vulnerable. Not only did the documentary focus on the problem but examined solutions. So glad that addiction was included and not given a backseat. I am glad to see there is a study guide and that they included a variety of mental health diagnosisA few negatives
Patrick Kennedy was annoying in his snippetsThe 11 year old diagnosing himself gay is ridiculousToo many private school rich kids presented who had money for excellent treatmentThe 40 year old bipolar guy was not part of the demographicWould have liked to seen more therapists besides the psychiatrist and the LCPCBut in spite of these few concerns, I applaud this documentary.

In Resilience, the second episode of Hiding in Plain Sight, our “heroes” speak about finding help and inpatient and/or outpatient treatment. It also explores the criminalization of mental illness, tragedy of youth suicide, and “double stigma” that occurs when mental illness is combined with racial or gender discrimination. Throughout, the interviewees demonstrate the power of resiliency and hope.
