Is Different Crazy
Films • 6m 20s
In Indonesia where 14 million people suffer from mental health disorders and shackling is still practised, this story is about how a man’s decade-long struggle with schizophrenia almost cost him his family and how he reclaimed his life with the help of Rumah Berdaya (meaning Home of Empowerment). The volunteers at this non-profit in Bali, Indonesia teach their schizophrenic members new skills in an effort to help them make a living. They also provide a safe space for their members to interact, and raise awareness of mental health issues by fostering closer ties with their families and the larger community.
