Hearing Our Voices: A documentary on schizophrenia and homelessness

The website (click above) for this documentary is worth visiting. It's beautifully done, with photos and stories introducing the participants and explaining what home is to them. I tried to recap what they said but I simply can't - you need to see their words over there - and hear them.

A poster on the site is simply entitled Searching for Sanctuary. It is a sanctuary most people take for granted, yet our society still needs to overcome the many barriers it has toward providing opportunities for housing for schizophrenics and many others with disabilities.

Video clips are available.
