The message is that while doctors and nurses are necessary, other kinds of non-medical intervention are needed, too, for those suffering from mental illness. Therapists and staff are shown working with patients and discussing effective approaches with one another. Music therapy, patients learning job skills, bouncing balls to one another — all are demonstrated. Respect and understanding of patients is emphasized.
