The forthcoming documentary CRAZYWISE reveals a paradigm shift that’s challenging the way Western culture defines and treats a mental health crisis.

The documentary CRAZYWISE reveals remarkably effective treatment approaches and a survivor-led movement challenging a mental health system in crisis.
