Crazy…or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.
Phil Borges' and Kevin Tomlinson's new documentary CRAZYWISE is a game changer. It's going to be an important step forward in starting the long overdue conversation on how we define and treat mental illness in America.Rick Steves, Travel Writer & PBS TV, NPR Radio Host
If I had seen Crazywise or heard it's transformative message 25 years ago I may not have felt condemned to a life of suffering when I was given a psychiatric diagnosis. Instead, I may have felt a sense of hope that I could find an accepting community that would help me grow and find meaning in my experiences.Kathleen Murphy Community Psychiatric Clinic, counselor
