Summary Babies are dying and mothers are committing suicide, and the signs are being missed. But now an essential, one-of-a-kind feature documentary on maternal health and postpartum depression and psychosis can help professionals, family members, and mothers themselves. WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS has been screened in 70 countries across the world; in hospitals, mental health facilities and other institutions. Narrated and Executive Produced by Brooke Shields, this shocking film uncovers a neglected public health issue that affects 20% of mothers: millions of women every year. The film follows Lindsay Gerszt, who has lived with PPD for six years, for an in-depth look at her path to recovery, and features stories from singer Carnie Wilson, actress Tanya Newbould, celebrity chef Aarti Sequeira and Peggy Tanous of The Real Housewives of Orange County. We also meet women who have killed their children and families who have lost loved ones to suicide. Their stories and the others presented in WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS take us on a journey to find answers, break the silence, and save lives
