Dr. Sarah Vinson Talks with NPR About Youth Mental Health Crisis and New Documentary “Hiding in Plain Sight”
The new documentary “Hiding in Plain Sight” is an investigation of the mental health challenges of youth in the US, which Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has flagged as a "real and widespread" problem. The film is streaming now on PBS.
Dr. Sarah Vinson, Interim Chair of the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and a triple board-certified child & adolescent, adult, and forensic psychiatrist, is part of the documentary. Dr. Vinson and Erik Ewers, one of the film’s directors, spoke with National Public Radio host Juana Summers of “All Things Considered” on July 5 about the project and the current youth mental health crisis.
