Like the Others


“Like the Others” delves into the challenges of a child and adolescent psychiatric center near Vienna, providing a poignant look at the balance between caution and crisis management in mental health care for the young. This documentary highlights the taboo of child mental illness, presenting the lives of therapists, parents, and children striving to feel normal amidst routine and improvisation. It questions the short-term impact of institutional care on reintegration into society, showcasing the critical role of such facilities.


  • Süddeutsche Zeitung
    The fact that psychiatry is still seen by many as a “last resort” also has to do with fears about this institution - Wulff's documentary, on the other hand, is a healing remedy.
