MISTREATED MINDS is a documentary about the often overwhelming stigma facing those who struggle with mental health conditions.
In 1992, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) and Public Citizen's Health Research Group released a report that "revealed alarmingly high numbers of people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and other severe mental illnesses incarcerated in jails across the country. Most of these people had not committed major crimes, but either had been charged with misdemeanors or minor felonies directly related to the symptoms of their untreated mental illnesses, or had been charged with no crimes at all." (NAMI, 2004)
