Based on actual experiences, this fictionalized work explores trauma, its survivors, and the people in the trenches who are affected vicariously. Set in a psychiatric hospital, Asymptomatic journeys into the fragility and resiliency of children and adolescents coping with mental illness and the effects on their adult care providers. It intersects at the crossroads between poetry, prose, and performance by taking on the form each individual narrative calls for. It reflects on the past, which overflows into the present, and aspires to change the future. This work offers glimpses into the minds of those who reside and work in both brick hospital buildings and evergreen landscaped trails. Boldly asking the question, are we not all mere step(s) away from getting lost on our trek?
