This is Crazy: Criminalizing Mental Illness is a three-part documentary series which highlights stories of individuals with mental illnesses who have found themselves in a dysfunctional prison system rather than getting proper care. The incarceration of those with a mental illness causes great harm to the individual and also perpetuates a cycle that is damaging to the community, all while spending tax-payer money. Through personal interviews with community leaders, city officials, and formerly incarcerated individuals with a mental illness, this series seeks to bring attention to the injustice of criminalizing mental health and offers alternative community solutions.
