Welcome

Join us for a screening of “Bedlam”, a feature-length documentary that immerses us in the national crisis surrounding care of people with severe mental illness, followed by a panel discussion featuring speakers with both personal and professional expertise.

“Bedlam” has been hailed by critics as “a damning indictment and a call to action” and “a stick of dynamite thrown into the dark and troubled history of mental health care for those with serious mental illness.” Filmed over five years, it brings us inside one of America’s busiest psychiatric emergency rooms, into jails where psychiatric patients are warehoused, and to the homes – and homeless encampments – of members of our communities with mental illness, where silence and shame often compound personal suffering.

Our panel discussion will focus on housing issues, including the importance of high-quality supportive housing programs, the challenges of providing housing, and how the traumas of homelessness and incarceration continue to worsen this crisis. Our panelists include those who have experienced first-hand how beneficial a supportive environment can be in recovering from serious mental illness, as well as those who work to provide and advocate for those safe and supportive environments.

We are pleased to welcome NAMI national CEO Dan Gillison in joining us for this important conversation. Join us to discuss the film during the virtual screening and to share your experiences and questions during the panel afterwards.

Please note: this film contains some disturbing content, including depictions of non-suicidal self-injury and the use of restraints, and discussions of suicide. We are committed to supporting whatever feelings come up for members of our community during the screening.

Our panelists:

Michael Andersson, NAMI-NYC In Our Own Voice Presenter, and Peer-to-Peer facilitator

Daniel H. Gillison Jr., CEO, NAMI National

Dr. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg, Director and Producer, BEDLAM

Sammy Davis Santana, Program Manager at Brooklyn Self Help, and Peer Specialist at the Brooklyn Peer Advocacy Center

Friday January 15, 2021. Screening begins at 5pm ET, panel at 6:30pm
