The High Cost of Mental Health Care for One Family | FRONTLINE



“Waiting for Tearah” follows a family’s struggle to navigate America’s mental health care system, and explores the often unseen costs of care.

At 16, Tearah, who suffers from mental illness, remains stuck in a hospital month after month, as her mother struggles to navigate America’s mental health care system. As Shayna, a single parent of three girls, fights to get Tearah residential treatment, she faces the possibility of losing her home and even custody of her daughter.

Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," Frontline's stature over more than 28 years is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.
