My Kid Is Not Crazy
“My Kid is Not Crazy,” a film by Tim Sorel, tracks the journey of six children and their families as they become tangled in the nightmare of a medical system influenced by the pharmaceutical industry. Here, it’s common for a caregiver to prescribe a child a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor, or SSRI, but hesitate to prescribe an antibiotic to counteract a potential infection-based trigger. For some of these kids, what happens after several years is shocking and sad.
