WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17; program begins at 6:30 p.m.
A documentary about thought, humanity and recovery, “All These Flowers” tells the emotionally charged story of six people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. They come from across the U.S. with different family structures, financial situations and treatment strategies. Shot over the course of 2 years, the film captures the struggle of mental illness and how our healthcare system is unequipped to help.
Ranging from a young man living homeless in Colorado and an inmate in Kansas, to a young mother in Wisconsin and a retiree in Pennsylvania, the film expresses the diversity and complexity of the diagnosis while addressing the stigmas and challenges faced by those who are diagnosed. It digs into their relationships with their spouses, children, parents, counselors and communities. It speaks of the love and support necessary for recovery and the consequences possible when the support is not there.
Marina Pappas – Executive Director, NAMI Racine County – will lead a panel discussion and Q&A following the film. The panel will consist of a healthcare advocate, law enforcement officer and family members.
Film is 83 minutes long and is not rated.
