The Empowerment Exchange of Rensselaer County, a program of the Mental Health Empowerment Project, Inc., is proud to present a free film screening of the documentary Healing Voices.
This event will be Friday, April 27th at 6:00pm at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, located at 3361 6th ave N. Troy, New York. Free popcorn and refreshments will be provided.
Healing Voices is a documentary that explores experiences commonly labeled as a 'psychosis.' By way of inspirational stories of individuals learning to grow through their lived experiences, this film challenges us to rethink our cultural understanding of 'mental illness' by bringing a message of recovery through peer support. The Empowerment Exchange offers Hearing Voices peer support groups right in our own community of Troy every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30pm. These groups will soon be coming to Albany County as well!
Following the film screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring members of the production. The audience will be able to ask questions and we hope to form a community dialogue.
We hope that you will join us!
