Summary
Filmed over three years, Unbreakable Minds captures the emotional journeys of Randy, Brad and Rob as they struggle with schizophrenia and depression. A poignant portrayal of three engaging characters, the film takes us through their experiences from the inside looking out. It follows their progress and their setbacks; the struggle to find the right medication, the delusional episodes, and the challenges faced by their loyal and loving families.Randy aged 35, reacts poorly to new medication and becomes aggressive and delusional. Brad, 31, had been a vibrant youth until the chaos of schizophrenia brought him down. Rob, at 42 is separated from his mother for the first time as she is now confined to a nursing home. He finds "paradise" in a group home.The film visits a unique housing and support center, WilPower, that fights the taboos surrounding mental illness. Their group homes enable the mentally handicapped to live successfully within communities that were initially hostile to their presence. Unbreakable Minds gives a candid, close-up view of what it is like to live with mental illness both from a patient s perspective and from that of their caregivers
