What happens when familiar signs of mental illness – rapid-onset OCD, tics, hyperactivity – are misdiagnosed? 

This is the unfortunate reality for children living with the auto-immune disease known as PANDAS. Many families who turn to medical professionals for answers are often forced into a long journey filled with misdiagnoses and a lack of awareness. “Stolen Childhood” takes an in-depth look at​ the lives of these families, the impact of PANDAS, and the consequences of medical misdiagnosis.
