ABA Mental Health Day

We will be viewing the documentary, Kings Park. The movie takes an inside look at public mental health care in America and focuses on the story of this now abandoned institution that is in our backyard here on Long Island. 

On June 21, 1967, at the age of 17, Lucy Winer was committed to the female violent ward of Kings Park State Hospital following a series of failed suicide attempts. Over 30 years later, now a veteran documentary filmmaker, Lucy returns to Kings Park for the first time since her discharge. Her journey back sparks a decade-long effort to face her past and learn the story of the now abandoned institution that once held her captive. Her meetings with other former patients, their families, and the hospital staff reveal the painful legagy of our state hospital system and the crisis left by its demise.
