Hear Our Voices

When: Thu., Aug. 29 2013

Relating the stories of nine children and young adults who struggle with mental illness, Hear Our Voices is a new documentary by local filmmakers David and Patricia Earnhardt. The movie explores the connections between mental health, physical health, trauma and brain development, and illuminates the complex web of causes and effects that can define mental illness in young people. Voices advocates for community-based treatment options that refrain from isolating minors who may be suffering from mental illness, favoring the natural support that can be found in familiar homes and neighborhoods even as funding cuts often target these programs while continuing to subsidize outmoded, less effective treatment methods in hospitals and institutions. The film is already garnering reviews that call it “brave and beautiful.”
