Through intimate stories of patients, families, and medical providers, BEDLAM immerses us in the national crisis surrounding care of the severely mentally ill.
Filmed over five years, it brings us inside one of America’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, where silence and shame often compound personal suffering.
Post-film discussion to follow with Dr. Howard Weeks, Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Utah School of Medicine and Amber MacKay, Executive Director of the Summit County Clubhouse.
Presented with Park City Film and CONNECT Summit County as part of the Reel Community Series.
