Educational, sensitive and a happy ending
6 January 2000 | by (PENNSYLVANIA) – See all my reviews

I am a mental health professional and after watching Dare to Love on January 6th 2000, I was overwhelmed with emotion.People who are not educated on mental illness can't imagine what family and friends go through when dealing with a mentally ill person. Hats off to Lifetime TV for giving those who don't understand this disease a chance to understand that medication management and support from loved ones, patients can again become productive in the community and improve their quality of life. I am interested in getting a copy of this movie or any information as to when it might be viewed in the future. THANKS BARBARA
