    Source: NAMI.org Newsletter

    On May 10, PBS will broadcast nationally a documentary on mental illness filmed inside the Ohio state prison system. The broadcast coincides with two national conferences being held in Columbus, Ohio on May 11-12 on mental illness, law enforcement and the criminal justice system, co-sponsored by the Ohio chapter of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI).

    "The New Asylums" is a thought-provoking film about the shift of the burden of mental healthcare costs to jails and prisons -- going deep into Ohio's prison system to explore issues that involve nearly half a million people with mental illnesses incarcerated nationwide. The film includes unprecedented access to prison therapy sessions, mental health treatment meetings, crisis wards, and prison disciplinary tribunals. For more information, visit the PBS Web site.

    Air date:
    Tuesday, May 10
    PBS Frontline, 9PM EDT
    (Check local listings)
