No Kidding, Me 2! : Mental Illness Documentary

Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos, Memento, The Matrix) makes his documentary directorial debut with NO KIDDING, ME TOO! as part of his fight against the stigma and shame of mental/brain “dis-ease” (or disease). This empowering film sheds light on what nearly 100 million Americans suffer in isolation. Through candid, often humorous discussions with Pantoliano and his family on their struggle with his own clinical depression, as well as the compelling stories of five other people from all walks of life, all affected differently by mental illness: a brain surgeon with bipolar disorder, a psychologist with ADHD, and three high school students managing bipolar disorder and clinical depression. Each frankly discusses the struggle before they were diagnosed, including attempts at self-medication and other destructive behavior, as well as the hope and encouragement they discover when managing their own recovery and realizing they are not alone.

The result is an inspiring vision of a society that “stomps the stigma,” as those impacted by mental illness are surprised to find millions of others like themselves, saying, “No kidding, me too!”

    Great movie! I work at Silver Hill Hospital and Joey was kind enough to loan us a copy to preview last fall. The individuals featured in the movie share their moving stories with strength, humor and incredible insight. Joey has created a wonderful film that helps people realize it’s not only ok, but also healthy, to talk about mental dis-ease. I highly recommend this movie and the wonderful work of No Kidding, Me Too!
