On The Other Side (2021) is the (triumphant) journey of a brown girl and psychiatric health care professional searching for hope following her own psychiatric stay. Sandi Trevino Rae spent her life feeling less than and different from all her blond hair, blue- eyed friends that seemed to have a perfect life. Unaccepting of the stigma behind mental illness, she eventually found help, hope, and found herself again On The Other Side. Imagine every item of clothing you are wearing being stripped away from your body and every hope you have for your future now becomes dark and slowly slips away. This is what it feels like in the intake area of a psychiatric hospital. Working over 20 years in mental health did not prepare Sandi Trevino Rae for her journey on a locked psychiatric unit. Sandi eventually finds hope and finds herself again after ignoring the stigma of mental illness and now helps others to find their way On The Other Side.
