- Thursday, May 24
- 12:00 noon

This documentary film focuses on the stigma surrounding and recovery from mental illness, providing an inside look at what it’s like to live with a mental illness and how individuals and their families find their way through medical, governmental, societal, and spiritual issues—to hope. The devastation of mental illness tears lives and homes apart. So often, understanding and treatment fall woefully short. Shadow Voices is a hard-hitting, yet compassionate, exploration that offers practical insight into the bleak world of mental illness.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
