To See What I See: The Stigma of Mental Illness
Support others. Stop stigma. Reach out. These are the messages of the Northern Lakes Community Mental Health Stigma Busters Project, showcased in this brief documentary. Learn about a creative project where people who have experienced mental health issues use art, "photobiographies," and writing to help others understand them and spread the word that recovery from a mental illness is possible. This documentary will help you create a tremendously powerful and effective program in your own community. Includes interviews of people with mental health issues, explanations of the Stigma Busters Project, and examples of the many works created during this project. Especially helpful for schools and for those working in the field of mental health. Also relevant for people with mental illness and their family members to be inspired, to hope, and to understand that recovery is possible.
