Negative Mental Health Awareness - Nice Plot and Play though
24 July 2016 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

I see myself in this play as Nick unfortunately.

True he suffers from emotional imbalance but in today's age,l labeling with psychiatric disorders is a crime.

Talk therapy would work with a better therapist and no need for dangerous meds.

I was also prescribed meds and saw the light when I realized issues were not dealt with...

I do see common character of a mother being so lost and so not in tune to emotional issues and kudos to you, that is common and classic.

If mother would be educated about REAL mental challenges, a better psychoanalytic approach would save the kid.

I'm not an activist but if you want to show a movie without caring for a positive or negative position, it's well played. However, when I see Mental Health Awareness comments and a seemingly eye opening intention, I cannot ignore my comment.

I'm a former depressive and anxiety sufferer doing better with less meds (going off completely after 23 years, with god's help) so I have a voice.

Sorry guys but it's a hell of an intriguing story with bad message.

Thanks for listening.
