Previewing the Reel Mind Film Series and discussing efforts to eliminate stigma tied to mental illness
A local theatre and film series dedicated to eliminating stigma tied to mental illness is back. The Reel Mind Theatre & Film Series runs weekly from October 11 through November 1. This year’s performances and documentaries follow three participants in a mental health court probation program in Chicago; a woman’s journey into and out of severe depression; and a trauma therapy program dedicated to helping veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Our guests preview the series and discuss how to raise awareness of mental health challenges and treatment. Our guests:
- Larry Guttmacher, M.D., professor emeritus in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and co-director of the Reel Mind Theatre & Film Series
- Margaret Byrne, director of “Any Given Day”
- Adina Taubman, writer of and performer in “The Road Back”
