The documentary tells the story of Linda Bishop, a well-educated New Hampshire mother who battled severe bipolar disorder and homelessness.

On May 3, 2008, her body was found in an abandoned New Hampshire home. A journal found beside the body documents a journey of starvation and the loss of sanity with poignancy, humor and spirituality.

“God Knows Where I Am” tells Bishop’s story through interviews with family, friends, and medical and legal professionals involved with her case. The documentary traces the events leading up to her hospitalization and investigates the final months of her life following her discharge.

These intimate accounts of Bishop’s experience raise questions about society’s treatment of people with mental health conditions and those who are displaced, exposing systemic failures to protect those who cannot protect themselves. For more information, visit pbs.org/godknowswhereiam
