Abstract
This video details the lives of eight parents who have experienced mental illness while raising a family. Most of these parents have faced enormous obstacles from homelessness, addictions, legal difficulties and hospitalizations yet have maintained a positive and loving relationship with their children. The video discusses the problems these adults face as people with mental illness and as parents who feel stigmatized by social, legal and familial systems. The people profiled in the video discuss how their illnesses have affected their ability to parent, and describe their commitment to rebuilding their most important relationships
