Thanks, Bamboo! I just set my DVR. I too saw this family on Oprah and was fascinated. I’ll watch it when I’m done on the Bee!

I’m watching it as well! I am a social worker who works with adults with mental illness and some of them have children with mental illnesses as well, so this is very interesting.

I’m watching this right now.  It’s so interesting and sad what these poor families and kids go through.

I’m watching this while baby sitting a teenager with autism. It’s mental health night!

the worst part is the freaking insurance companies that deny the coverage after awhile and kick these girls out of the hospital when they shouldn’t be kicked out.  More reason to have public health coverage for everyone.

I am watching it too!

I am an elementary school teacher.  We have a few students with mental illnesses, but nothing of this magnitude.  We also have a large number of students with mental and physical disorders and disabilities.  I am always surprised at how quickly people jump to judgement when it comes to children with mental illnesses, like schizophrenia.  But those same people often say to me, “Oh, I just love Jimmy.  Children with special needs have a place in my heart.”
