Healing Voices Documentary Screening
Healing Voices is a new feature-length documentary that explored the experiences commonly labeled a "psychosis" or "mental illness" through the real-life stories of individuals working to overcome extreme mental states and integrate these experiences into their lives in meaningful ways.
The film follows three subject - Oryx, Jen, and Dan - over a period of neary five years and features interviews with many notable personalities, including: Robert Whitaker, Dr. Bruce Levine, Will Hall, Dr. Marius Romme, and others, on the history of psychiatry and the rise of the "medical model" of mental health treatment.
Healinv Voices challenges us to rethink our cultural understanding of "mental illness" by bringing a message of recovery, and charting a course for effective alternative treatments that enable people to live productive and meaningful lives.
