Description

FREE SCREENING!

One in 10 American children suffer from serious emotional disturbance and more than 17 million have experienced a psychiatric disorder.  A Dangerous Son focuses on three families in crisis, each struggling with a child’s severe mental illness while desperately seeking treatment in the face of limited resources and support; exposing cracks in a system that fails too many families, with potentially devastating consequences for the child or for others. A Dangerous Son highlights the cycle of counselor visits, medications, hospitalizations and encounters with law enforcement common to many children and families grappling with psychiatric disorders.

Join us for a post-film Q&A discussion facilitated by Virginia Zecchini, Assistant Clinical Professor of Social Work at the Yale Child Study Center.
