Illinois Mental Health Task Force Special Screening of the Newly Released Documentary, “The Definition of Insanity,” and Family Panel
It can be very difficult and heart-wrenching to see a loved one struggling with symptoms of mental illness. And often it can be hard to know how to best help and support your loved one. When a person is living with a serious mental illness, the whole family may be affected. Every individual is different and situations vary greatly. The person may have a specific diagnosis, or you may just have concerns about the way a person has been talking and behaving. This session will explore the struggles of persons with mental illness and their path from incarceration to recovery through a powerful film and a panel discussion focused on the family perspective.
