MY KID IS NOT CRAZY
1x90' or 60'

More than 30 years ago, Susan Swedo, a doctor with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), discovered that an undiagnosed strep infection was the cause of one child’s disabling mental illness. Swedo puts her career on the line in order to prove what is happening to hundreds of thousands of profoundly sick children and in doing so reveals a nightmare of a medical system heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical industry. This documentary unpacks the fierce disagreement that occurs among doctors in addressing youth mental illness. Treated with anti-psychotic medications and years of misdiagnosis can leave these children with irrecoverable consequences.
