This documentary features interviews with six people whose personal stories shed light on mental
health and the experience of being labeled as having a mental “illness”.
Those who face the challenge of recovering from mental health conditions, also often face the
experiences of being shunned, avoided, and deprived of employment, housing, relationships, and other life opportunities. Stigma can lead adults and children to feel worthless and alone, though many of the most creative and talented members of society face these sorts of challenges.
The courage and generosity of sharing, disclosing their struggles and triumphs over mental health
challenges, is a transformative experience, both for those sharing and for those bearing witness to
these “Voices that Heal”.
Panel discussion following the film with filmmaker Alex Goldenberg & local Seeds of Understanding Speakers Collective members.
