This was like watching my life
11 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film is an honest, gripping portrayal of what it's like to learn that your child has mental illness. As the parents struggle to come to grips with their family's new reality, they face increasing social ostracism from their friends and neighbors. The soccer game scene seemed to be pulled right from my own life. And the siblings' frustration is completely understandable.

Mental illness affects the whole family. Far too many families suffer in shame and silence. Yet "No Letting Go" also offers real hope. With treatment, children can survive and even thrive. I am so grateful for this film--my biggest fear is that the people who need to see it most (those who are not living with this and who continue to blame parents for their children's brain disease) will not see the film.
