          Woman Claims She Posts Videos Of Her Son Online To Advocate For Mental Health


          February 26, 2019

          Susan says she believes her 11-year-old son, Bodhi, has childhood-onset schizophrenia. Her ex-husband, Michael, vehemently disagrees. He says Bodhi has a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.

          Michael is accusing Susan of exploiting their son on her YouTube channel to which she has posted more than 180 videos documenting the child’s behaviors and the challenges he faces.

          She denies exploiting her son. “I’m exploiting the mental healthcare industry,” she says.

          Claiming that she’s using her YouTube channel to advocate for mental health, Susan says, “Because no one else is.”

          “That’s why you got Sandy Hook.” She continues, referring to the 2012 elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, where 28 people died.

          When Dr. Phil says, “I want your passion, I want your caring, but I don’t want you doing it the way you’re doing it, because it is not good,” what is Susan’s response?

          The conclusion of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Check here to find out where you can watch.
