Don't Miss 'One Night One Voice', 'Healing Voices' Viewings in Your Area!

NYAPRS Note: Please come out and view ‘Healing Voices’ and be a part of an historic international ‘One Night, One Voice’ dialogue.

HEALINGVOICES is a new social-action documentary feature which is expected “to go a long way to healing our fear of people commonly labeled as “schizophrenic,” “bipolar,” and “psychotic.” The message of this film is that understanding and love—not fear and stigmatizing labels—are what people who have experienced these altered states need.”

The film explores two question: What are we talking about when we talk about “mental illness”? What is truly helpful?

“By way of the harrowing and inspiring stories of individuals learning to negotiate and grow through the madness, HEALING VOICES challenge us to rethink our cultural understanding of “mental illness” by bringing a message of recovery, and charting a the course for the effective alternative treatments that enable people to live productive meaningful lives.”

The film is co-produced by Oryx Cohen, an extraordinary leader in the international consumer/survivor/ex-patient movement who currently serves as the director of the National Empowerment Center’s Technical Assistance Center.

Below are dates and places where the film will be shown: see http://healingvoicesmovie.com/one-night-one-voice/ for active links to each of these showings.
