Runtime: 85 minutes
Closed Captioning included
Through intimate stories of patients, families, and medical providers, BEDLAM immerses us in America's national crisis surrounding care of the severely mentally ill. Filmed over five years, it brings us inside one of the nation's busiest psychiatric emergency rooms, into jails where psychiatric patients are warehoused, and to the homes – and homeless encampments – of mentally ill members of our communities. The story is told in part by director Kenneth Paul Rosenberg, MD, a psychiatrist, filmmaker, and brother of a person with schizophrenia.
