stolen childhood (feature documentary)

What happens when familiar signs of mental illness - rapid-onset OCD, tics, ​hyperactivity - are misdiagnosed?

This is the unfortunate reality for children living with the auto-immune ​disease known as PANDAS. Many families who turn to medical professionals ​for answers are often forced into a long journey filled with misdiagnoses and ​a lack of awareness. "Stolen Childhood" takes an in-depth look at​ the lives ​of these families, the impact of PANDAS, and the consequences of medical ​misdiagnosis.

The overall goal of Stolen Childhood is to educate not only current medical ​professionals but also up and coming medical professionals. We also hope to ​generate awareness throughout the general population to encourage parents ​to ask important questions to their doctors and to look deeper into any initial ​diagnosis their child might receive.
