Free 4/29 Film

“On April 29, VIP will show a documentary film, “Healing Voices” which questions the definition of “mental illness.” The film shows the lives of three individuals following an earlier period of emotional upset, confusion and hospitalization. Their lives are now substantially recovered — they have satisfying jobs and families — and they now question the meaning of their “mental illness.”

This film showing is sponsored by a group from the undergraduate psychology program at the University of Hartford, and community nonprofits Advocacy Unlimited and Volunteers In Psychotherapy. The event is part of a nation-wide release of this film, sponsored by the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care. A panel discussion will follow the film.

The public is invited to this free film showing of the documentary “Healing Voices” at University of Hartford’s Wilde Auditorium, Friday, April 29, at 7pm. Free parking, near Wilde Auditorium, in Lot F.
