Ken Burns “Hiding in Plain Sight” Q&A Panel
Ilyana Adame, Maddie Stults, Guiying Zhong and Brandon Smith — members of NAMI’s Next Gen young adult advisory group — sit down for a discussion with Ken Burns, executive producer of “Hiding In Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness.”
This four-part, eight hour series follows the journeys of more than 20 young Americans from all over the country and all walks of life, who have struggled with thoughts and feelings that have troubled—and, at times—overwhelmed them. Hiding in Plain Sight presents an unstinting look at both the seemingly insurmountable obstacles faced by those who live with mental disorders and the hope that many have found after that storm.
The film includes insights from families, providers, and advocates and explores the impact of childhood trauma, stigma, and social media. Curated segments of the film are available to support educators in their classrooms, for professional development, and for sparking conversation within the school community.
