About the Film
An estimated 16.8 million people in the U.S. are caring for a child with disabilities or complex medical needs. The demands of daily life and chronic stress can negatively affect the mental and physical wellbeing of parent caregivers. With few who understand their situation and limited accommodations, caregivers often feel alone in their struggle.
The Unseen documentary takes a raw, honest look at the parent caregiving experience. If caregivers are ever going to get the support and resources they deserve, they first have to be seen and heard. The Unseen documentary puts faces and stories to this issue to enable change for the caregivers in our community.
