About Blind Spot:
We follow a mother’s struggle to understand her daughter’s crisis when it affects the whole family. How can we, as adults, parents and society help children and young people to talk about complicated thoughts and mental problems when the ideals are based on happiness and success?
>>Please note that the talk starts at 5:30 p.m. this time.
