    Children of Darkness is an Oscar nominated 1983 documentary film
    produced and written by Richard Kotuk and Ara Chekmayan. It explored
    the topic of juvenile psychiatry - an acute lack of mental health
    care in America for seriously emotionally disturbed youth. Many
    children in these institutions were simply warehoused and the common
    basic form of therapy was drugs, which didnt really help the kids
    but merely controlled them. The film not only uncovered the
    mistreatments in mental institutions but it also captured the cold
    realization that mental illness can happen to anyone. Public mental
    institutions were not just for the poor. Children from middle class
    families and upper middle class families often ended up there due to
    inadequate insurance money and dwindled savings.
