Mon. 5/13 – DEPRESSION: OUT OF THE SHADOWS – Free documentary film screening sponsored by NAMI Sussex. Monday May 13, 2019 from 7 – 9 p.m. at Bridgeway, 93 Stickles Pond Rd, Newton, NJ. Personal narratives dominate this beautifully photographed PBS documentary, allowing those who suffer from depression to tell us their stories with intense emotional honesty, conveying how devastating and disabling the symptoms can be.  Doctors, therapists and researchers discuss the various forms of depression with clarity, compassion and scientific rigor.

By weaving together the science and treatment of depression with intimate portrayals of families and individuals coping with its wide-ranging effects, the film raises awareness, eliminates stigma, and ultimately provides hope that professional treatment works and people do recover. A brief guided discussion will follow the showing of the film. Click here for flyer.
Thurs. May 23 – INTO THE LIGHT – Free documentary film screening co-sponsored by Sussex County Division of Community & Youth Services and NAMI Sussex.Thursday May 23, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.. at Hopatcong Community Resource & Wellness Center, 47 Hopatchung Road, Hopatcong, NJ 07843. The film focuses on Brendan O’Toole, a  Marine veteran, and his struggle to assimilate back into society after returning from war, and Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, founder and president of Give an Hour, as she comes to the realization that she needs to share her own story.
Ultimately this is a film about trust…the trust we put in one another so we can feel safe to tell our stories. The film’s purpose is simple and direct: to serve as a conversation starter for people to change the culture around mental health, mental illness and emotional well-being. The screening will be followed by a guided discussion with the audience to explore and share thoughts, feelings and experiences as they relate to the stories presented in the film.
One or two members of our community living with mental health conditions will also share their personal stories of recovery and hope.   Community resources will be provided, with an emphasis on resources for veterans coping with Post-traumatic Stress.  Click here for flyer.
