Healing Voices Movie Premiere
Wed 3 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Healing Voices is a new feature-length document which explores the experiences commonly labelled as "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 subjects - Oryx, Jen, and Dan - over a period of nearly 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.
By way of the harrowing and inspiring stories of individuals learning to negotiate and grow through their madness, Healing Voices challenges us to rethink our cultural understanding of "mental illness" by bringing a message of recovery, and charting the course for effective alternatuve treatments that can enable people to live productive and meaningful lives.
