Abstract

In Their Shoes is a short film by Jamie O’Roark and the Mental Health Needs Council of Harris County describing mental illness and talking about mental health services in Harris County for adults and children. There are first hand accounts of various mental illnesses and physicians giving descriptions of illnesses including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depressive disorders. The film notes that mental illness is common and that stigma plays a role in keeping mental health needs unmet. The film gives various statistics on the number of people waiting for mental health services in Harris County as well as the number of people in jail or juvenile facilities who need mental health services. The film ends talking about the need to prioritize funding for mental health services in Texas. See more at Films on Mental Health Provided by Bill Schnapp and its finding aid.
