Presented by NAMI Miami-Dade
Miami, FL (April 21, 2017)–In advocating for greater understanding of the complexity of mental illness, treatment and recovery, and to counteract the stigma and shame which often thwarts this understanding, NAMI Miami-Dade County proudly presents its 2nd Annual Reel Minds Mental Health Film Festival at UM’s Donna E. Shalala Student Center Grand Ballroom Saturday night, May 13, 2017, beginning at 6 p.m. with a reception and musical performance. The event is free and open to the public.
Films are a compelling storytelling form that connect with our deepest sensibilities. That’s why for the second consecutive year, NAMI Miami-Dade is showcasing a curated list of short films inspired by the lives of those who have been affected by mental illness. These narratives will share a range of life experiences meant to inspire, heal, and empower. Vice President, Kathy Coppola, says, ” We invite the community to join us at UM Shalala Center’s Grand Ballroom for an evening of movies designed to shine the spotlight on this topic. Although it affects 1 in 5 people, mental illness is not well understood, nor are the resources for recovery and treatment. Let’s stop the stigma and share insights together. This topic touches all of us.”
