Mental Health Awareness & Advocacy Events

5/20/2018 - 5/20/2018

5/20/18 Mental Health Film Fest at Varsity Theater!!

In honor of National Mental Health Awareness Month, NAMI-SO presents their first-ever Mental Health Film Fest, from 1-3 pm, Sunday, May 20th, 2018 at the Varsity Theater in downtown Ashland!

The event will be a series of short films, addressing mental illness topics that include: PTSD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Suicide, Schizophrenia, Dual Diagnosis and interaction with the Justice System. Many of the shorts have won awards at the Mindscape Film Festival. After each section of shorts, we will have a panel of experts for interactive discussion and Q&A. 

This event promises to appeal to a large audience and is appropriate for anyone over the age of 13 (some media violence). We will include perspectives from youth in the videos, so please spread the word to anyone you feel will be interested.

Because there are costs associated with this event, there is a $14.50 fee for tickets. There will be one showing only, so please buy your tickets as soon as possible, to be assured a seat. You can purchase them here. We must meet our goal of selling 65 tickets by May 10th, for the event to actually happen. Therefore, if you are unable to attend, but like the idea of a Mental Health Film Fest, please consider helping us out by getting a ticket, anyway. You can donate your ticket to help someone attend who might not have been able to, otherwise! (Call the NAMI Library to donate tickets.)

We have had a number of ticket donations, already. NAMI-SO wants everyone to feel welcome at the event, so please contact the NAMI Library if you are in need of a donated ticket.

We are very excited about this event and hope to see you all there!

Come to the Premiere Mental Health Film Fest!

There will be a total of seven short films, ranging from 1 to 20 minutes long.
