Mental Health and Homelessness:
Documentary Screening & Panel Discussion
MHAFC will host a film screening and expert panel discussion of God Knows Where I Am, a feature-length documentary that details the fate of Linda Bishop, a single mother with bipolar disorder and psychosis, and addresses unresolved issues of personal autonomy versus a patient’s inability to protect herself. A police officer, a judge, psychiatrists, a social worker and Ms. Bishop’s sister, Joan, and daughter, Caitlin, describe her life and treatment. The film tells the story of many through the chronicle of one: the spiral into psychosis, the tug-of-war with medication, the ineffectual hospitalizations, family unable to stem decline, and Linda’s eventual homelessness. After the film, local expert clinicians will discuss our community challenges, as well as programs and services available to connect clients and families to care.
