This BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) documentary produced by Louis Thereoux puts a spotlight on ‘America’s Medicated Kids’. It is a full length documentary, but worth the time if you can watch it in its entirety.
Here, the camera goes into the homes of several families to give us a sense of what it is to raise a child who’s “Autistic”, “ADHD”, “bi polar” or suffers from some form of mental disorder. We learn about ten year old Hugh and other kids, how the families came to the decision to medicate, and how they live, day by day with a child with this condition.
I felt less alone, but not any more comforted.
