For Your Own Good
Til ditt eget beste
An investigative documentary which gives the audience stark insights into a reality most of us know little about. The film was made over ten years, partially under extreme circumstances. Arnold Juklerød has been evicted from his home. He had earlier been forcibly committed to Gaustad Mental Hospital, and then refused to leave the hospital unless the original diagnosis was declared faulty. A series of drawbacks in the mental health system - a shadowy area totally under the control of appointed experts - was revealed as a result of Juklerød's protest. This uncensored film focuses on the consequences of unwanted contact with psychiatric health care. The film spotlights, and tries to demystify, the results.
