UNSEEN

How We’re Failing Parent Caregivers & Why It Matters

Global Online Premiere: May 20-26, 2022

Join us for the first online screening and Q&A with the filmmakers! Get your ticket now, and then watch the film online anytime between May 20-26. 

Many parent caregivers for children or adults who are disabled or medically complex are exhausted and isolated. Their mental and physical struggle is a public health crisis that costs us all. The “Unseen” documentary gives an unfiltered, honest glimpse into their lives to enable a change for millions of caregivers and their families.

The Unseen film fills a gap in the documentary landscape. We have seen dramatic growth in severe disability among children, and we are decades behind in catching up with the overwhelming challenges facing families. For those who do not bear these responsibilities, the film offers a rare peek inside the daily struggles of their neighbors. For caregivers in the trenches, Unseen allows them to be seen.”

Jill Escher

President, National Council on Severe Autism

“There’s not enough information and support for special needs parents in the mental health field. Parents are sent home with a diagnosis that can change their whole lives and need to process their feelings along the journey. The Unseen documentary raises awareness why the mental health field needs to make special needs caregivers a priority.
