The story started with a father asking for prayer

for a son struggling with schizophrenia.

Those prayers became a book and now a movie.

THE MOVEMENT 

Let's start a viral movement of prayer, affirmation and hope for those who struggle with serious mental illness.

According to the World Health Organization, 1 in 5 people suffer from some degree of mental illness. 

When family and friends are added to that number, the potential participants in this movement are enormous.

HELP US AFFIRM THEIR HUMANITY

Let Me Have My Son tells the story of a father, whose search for his son opens his eyes to a world he hadn't expected.  He discovers the precious humanity of those who struggle with serious mental illness and finds hope in the face of despair. 

Help others discover that same precious humanity and hope.

ALLIES

We want to partner with groups who promote greater care and dignity for the mentally ill.

And build a network of allies who spread the message of the film through their social media following.

There are 90% fewer beds for the mentally ill now than in 1963. Many now end up homeless, dead or in prison.

Help us support those who are working to make things better.
