Behind the scenes interview.Thanks for visiting our website. We need your help. This film will only reach completion with your support. The finish line is within sight!

Our team’s sweat equity, along with seed money from several supporters, got us up and running. With the backing of an executive producer and generous gifts from a handful of other donors, we conducted wide-ranging research, plotted storylines and characters to highlight in the film, undertook extensive field production, and produced a teaser-trailer.

Now we have completed all field production, a major milestone. Scripting and editing of the film are well under way. We’re at the point where we still need to raise the balance of the budget to continue with editing, as well as all post-production.

Donations — all fully tax-deductible — cover camera crew and gear, travel, film editing, graphics and animation artists, composer (for film score), archival materials, color correcting, sound mix, and all acquisition and rights licensing fees.

We are grateful for any support you can provide. Also, if you know of others who might be able to help, please tell them about our film and how they can contribute.


Your contribution to “NO ONE CARES ABOUT CRAZY PEOPLE” will help advance a growing national movement to radically reform our profoundly broken structures of care for people suffering from severe mental illness.

All gifts, grants, and donations are 100% tax-deductible, and all donors will receive credits.

Scroll below to see the names of people who have generously contributed.



Every little bit helps. Share with your friends to help support us. Have an inspired idea for us about potential donor(s)? We’d love to hear from you!


This project wouldn’t be possible without your support. Deep thanks.
