Originally released in 2009, in 28 States in The USA, “Human Like You -A Bipolar Odyssey” is an Award-Winning Film, fully-based on a True Story and starring the subject of the film himself, NEAL DAVID SUTZ, BNS is honored to be able to present this film publicly for the first time in nearly 20 years.
It is as important, pertinent, relevant and powerful as it was nearly 15 years ago when it first premiered.
In early September 2001, just days prior to the devastating 9/11 in The United States, Neal David Sutz, at 30 years old, woke up severely depressed for the first time in his life. He immediately went to a psychologist and a naturopathic doctor.
Five days later, the depression lifted. Within 2 months, he began a spiral of upward and downward motions in his mind, culminating in literally losing his mind and begging to get admitted to the Arizona State Hospital (formerly the Insane Asylum of Arizona).
Soon after, he was diagnosed with ultra-ultra rapid cycling, mixed state bipolar II disorder, in addition to severe, generalized anxiety disorder. And so began his road to healing. This movie will touch the hearts of millions and forever change the face of mental illness.
Not only does this film entertain, it educates and removes much of the stigma associated with mental illness.
