Dutch documentary on assisted suicide and chronic mental health illness

HUMAN Media (the Dutch humanistic broadcast foundation) has recently provided an English subtitled version of the Dutch documentary called “Mag ik dood?” (“Please let me die”), dealing with the problem of the lack of help for people with a chronic mental illness who wish to die. Documentary maker Eveline van Dijck takes you along in her search for answers, after the suicide of her sister Cathma. The questions raised by Eveline can be outlined in one theme: finding out if there is a humane way to choose your own moment of dying in life.

The documentary can be previewed on the site. If you want to order it right away ( € 20,-) send an e-mail to Cora van Dijk.
