Why Is this Film Needed?

An estimated 16.8 million people in America are caring for a child with disabilities.

The demands of daily life take a heavy toll on their mental and physical health.

When caregiving takes up so much of their available energy, attention and resources, many caregivers have little left over for prioritizing their own health. With more than 16 million caregivers in the U.S., their declining health is an issue that impacts our society at large.

Feeling pressure to make it look like they have everything under control, caregivers often feel alone in their struggle. 

If anything is going to change — if caregivers are ever going to get the support and resources they deserve — they first have to be seen and heard. The Unseen documentary brings caregivers and their stories into the light.
