PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - October is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to reflect on tremendous need in our country for mental health resources.

Now, an Oscar winning director is making a documentary about a Portland family and their struggle with mental illness. The film is about a husband, wife and daughter who lived for years with the woman's bipolar disorder until she took her own life.
