    I’ve seen this! Pretty good. Thanks for the upload! And YES! Mental illness is a bitch. And there are all different types. Bipolar disorder runs in my family. Medication and therapy have been the answer for us. Also, we’re not in anyway ashamed of it. In fact, we laugh at ourselves. When I was diagnosed my sister gave me a stuffed polar bear. 😂. When she was diagnosed I gave her a bigger one!

    I had a half sister with schizophrenia and at age 21 (I was 5, I am now almost 48), she committed suicide by jumping off a bridge in St. Paul into the Mississippi River. I do have some memories of her, some good and one in particular where after she threw our food off a table at a restaurant, the cops were taking her away and I was screaming at them, "Where are you taking my sister?" I kept yelling that and I still remember seeing her put into the back of the squad car. Nancy did a wonderful job portraying Nikki.

    I thought last year people who crazy like this girl do they hear voices of people who lived and do they really hear voices or is it all in the mind cause if they do hear people talking can it really be a disorder as long as the crazy person is listening and not talkin out loud nobody knows they talking to they self

    I suffer a different mental illness...Severe anxiety and deppression. I'm considered past Bipolar. Many years ago when I was bipolar I use to quit the meds all the time, I'd get well , get a job and then end up sick in the hospital. Till my doc decided that antidepressants weren't for me. Ever since I been staying on the same meds . I run my own sewing /crafts business from home. I don't always make any money but I love it. Mentally ill people are very creative. I make alot of home decor- Pillows and Things 678-629-9562. I don't always feel well so some times certain designs take longer. But the best things come to those who wait

    Nancy McKeown was such a doll. I never noticed it until my younger cousin pointed it out to me on that TV show they did. She started out looking kind of clumsy but blossomed, really grew into a beauty.

    The choppy editing & exterior voice over scenes just make it difficult to watch at times... I wish they would recut the original material with the audio clean up software and this film would be much better. Classic 80's television drama should be preserved!

  • CeeCee Williams The Nubian Angel

    I am bipolar and schizo affective. There is no cure. And I did take myself off meds because it seems as if the meds weren't doing any good and it made me sick. My meds was switched so many times until they finally find some that worked. There is no cure, but it can be manageable. It doesn't only affect me it affects my family. And it was a while before they understood what I was going through. People who does not research will not understand how this affect a person. Watch The secret she kept, it's a movie starring Kyla Pratt

    Very sad circumstance for that family ! Schizophrenia is not an " mental illness " ✌per se✌ ..... But it's an demon spirit that controls the will , emotions, & the mind of a person ! It's more spiritual than physical .... That's why scientists came up with the false narrative of the " mental illness " concept , trying to explain away the spiritual . But Jesus Christ himself came in contact with a demon possessed man whom Jesus described of having an " lunitic mind " ...... Today we would diagnosed that man as " mentally ill " & shove dozen of pills down his throat , instead of casting out the demon !!!!

    BRAIN DISORDERS very misunderstood!

    Take my hand and come with me,
    I want to teach you about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I need you to know, I want to explain,
    I have a very different brain.
    Sights, sounds, and thoughts collide.
    What to do first? I can't decide.
    Please understand I'm not to blame,
    I just can't process things the same.
    Take my hand and walk with me,
    Let me show you about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I try to behave, I want to be good,
    But I sometimes forget to do as I should.
    Walk with me and wear my shoes,
    You'll see its not the way I'd choose.
    I do know what I'm supposed to do,
    But my brain is slow getting the message through.
    Take my hand and talk with me,
    I want to tell you about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I rarely think before I talk,
    I often run when I should walk.
    It's hard to get my school work done,
    My thoughts are outside having fun.
    I never know just where to start,
    I think with my feelings and see with my heart.
    Take my hand and stand by me,
    I need you to know about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    It's hard to explain but I want you to know,
    I can't help letting my feelings show.
    Sometimes I'm angry, jealous, or sad.
    I feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and mad.
    I can't concentrate and I lose all my stuff.
    I try really hard but it's never enough.
    Take my hand and learn with me,
    We need to know more about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I worry a lot about getting things wrong,
    Everything I do takes twice as long.
    Everyday is exhausting for me...
    Looking through the fog of BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I'm often so misunderstood,
    I would change in a heartbeat if I could.
    Take my hand and listen to me,
    I want to share a secret about BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I want you to know there is more to me.
    I'm not defined by it, you see.
    I'm sensitive, kind and lots of fun.
    I'm blamed for things I haven't done.
    I'm the loyalist friend you'll ever know,
    I just need a chance to let it show.
    Take my hand and look at me,
    Just forget about the BRAIN DISORDERS.
    I have real feelings just like you.
    The love in my heart is just as true.
    I may have a brain that can never rest,
    But please understand I'm trying my best.
    I want you to know, I need you to see,
    I'm more than the label, I am still me!!!!

    The medications are great. They work by making them too sick to act out. Apparently they can't hear the voices or have the delusions with a splitting headache or flu symptoms. Get yourself a chick that hears voices crazy in the head crazy in bed.

    does anyone know if there is a missing scene? maybe it only aired in the original run of the film in 87? i just watched it on netflix and it wasn’t there either. i can swear it was this movie where they show her living in a place like that facility the mother looked at that had a long waiting list. when the parents were visiting, she told her father that she had been working on models, or designing again, and he was happy and excited to see what she had done, but when she showed him he was very disappointed (but tried not to let her see it) because what she had made was very simplistic and might have even been made of cardboard or something, definitely not the materials she used on the other one at the beginning of the film. was there another movie where the daughter was an architecture student that i’m thinking of? seems like a big coincidence if there was. i can’t imagine 2 such similar movies would have been made, and i feel like it was nancy mckeon in the scene i’m remembering.

    I have never seen this movie before. It was fantastic! Nancy is such a wonderful actress. She has proven that no role is too big for her. I’m also really happy they chose to do this topic. Mental illness is a very real and so stressful for so many. It seems to be a story that no one wants to tell. But I think it needs to be recognized and embraced as it is a part of our society.

    1:01:15 says it all. Psychiatry has nothing to improve the quality of life of people with SMI. What they offer are chemical straightjackets that make them less of a problem for the rest of us. And they wonder why medication compliance is so poor among this population, while illicit substance use (particularly meth) is so high.

    I can totally relate to this movie. My mom was a Schizophrenic. She also showed very erratic behavior. For example I could be in my room watching tv and she would come busting through the door just facing the wall or she would start yelling at me making no sense threatening to call the police. There was another time my mom had a minor car accident hitting the back of someone and the guy she hit said she didn’t get out of the car or anything. She just sat there in her car and stared straight ahead. She was non responsive.
    My mom was put on medication but it seemed like the medication made her worse

    Schizophrenia is one of the cruelest diseases out there. It takes beautiful, smart, talented and full of life young people who have nothing but the brightest futures in front of them and robs them of all that and more. One of the saddest diseases too. Thee are many types of schizophrenia with the paranoid type probably being the hardest to treat. Many stop taking their meds in fear they are being poisoned. To them, these fears are as real as night and day. I really hope someday a break thru happens and a cure for this happens. I watched a dear friend in high school lose to this disease right before his friends and family's eyes and nothing we could do. life went on after school of course and we had families of our own. Ten years later he took his two sons ages 3 and 1 to the foundry where he worked on Thanksgiving day to get his bible on the way to his mom's for TG dinner. His pregnant wife sat in the car while he took the boys in to "show them where daddy worked". He threw them into a 2000 degree foundry ladle. Then calmly went and told the security guard what he had done. This was TG 1987 and it will never leave my mind. I know his entire family and there is so much love in that family. It just tore it apart. Like I said to start. A very cruel disease. He like so many had stoped tking his meds.
