An in-depth look at the symptoms displayed and resources available to parents and caregivers when their children begin to exhibit signs of mental illness. How do you know? Who do you call?

IINSIGHT - The Shows
THE HEAD STYLIST
A fascinating conversation with the Head Stylist of one of the world's largest chains of clothing stores. What is style, what is your personal style and why is it important? Who's got it and who hasn't? Is it expensive to dress well? Does it matter? Not only are we going to have a frank exchange of ideas, we are going out on an actual fashion shoot and watch $10,000.00 a day models strut their stuff.
PARENTAL ALIENATION SYNDROME
What do you call it when, in the middle of a high conflict divorce, one parent uses the children as a weapon against the other parent and tries to completely erase the targeted parent from their children's lives? Parental Alienation may be a new term to some but for many parents, grandparents and extended families it is the cause of excruciating pain, confusion, heartache, and loneliness as they watch their children recede into the distance, helpless to know how to stop it from happening. Talking with an international panel of experts, we discuss all aspects of this phenomenon and what targeted parents can do to help their children and ultimately reunite.
THE HOLLYWOOD DIRECTOR
Peter Chelsom, director of SERENDIPITY, SHALL WE DANCE, HANNAH MONTANA THE MOVIE, TOWN AND COUNTRY, HEAR MY SONG, and the upcoming HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS stops by to talk about the ups and downs of being a true Hollywood movie director. How do you pitch a movie? What if you have to adapt from an original? What's it like to work with Robin Williams, Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Ned Beatty, Warren Beatty, Christopher Plummer and Jennifer Lopez, to name a few? Are directors ever out of work? Peter answers all those questions and more when he stops by for a chat.
THE WRONG MAN
One minute you're living your life, doing all the things that are normal for you and the next you are being arrested, imprisoned, tried, convicted, sentenced, and usually forgotten, lost within the prison system, thought about only by your nearest and dearest and sometimes they don't want to know either. But what if you didn't do anything wrong, what if you were totally innocent but still sentenced to long-term imprisonment? Will anyone listen and what in the world could they possibly do once you've been tried and convicted? In THE WRONG MAN we meet some people who have been through the chilling scenario just described but who, with the help of some expert advocates, got out after finally proving their innocence. What was it like to get arrested, to watch your life being stolen from you, and how did they cope with being inside while all the time knowing they were innocent? On INSIGHT, we'll find out.
