From the Front Cover:

Tremors in The System does what excellent films do best - it helps us understand by inspiring us to feel the struggles and the emotions that are portrayed on screen.  The viewer is exposed to the frustrations of being a person living with an extensive psychiatric history who is unable to attain credibility despite all her attempts to communicate her very genuine concerns.  I recommend this documentary to stimulate discussion for schools and community groups interested in gaining more understanding of mental illness. -- Ronald Bassman, PhD., author, A Psychologist's Experience From Both Sides of the Locked Door.

This is a collaborative film by Nora Jacobson and Marj Berthold.
