Below is an excerpt from a letter of support written by Karen Torgerson, a volunteer with AMI-Quebec, a non-profit organization that helps families manage the effects of mental illness. Karen is also a caregiver to series co-creator, Jöelle, who lives with bipolar disorder.

“Nobody can understand the emotional duress that comes with the role of caring for someone with mental illness. It is typical for caregivers to find help, information, and support for their loved one but not for themselves.”

“It is an opportune time to make a documentary that serves to engage and enlighten the public on the role of caregiving, and to empower those already on that journey.” 

“I wholeheartedly recommend the team making Better.”
