We've previously covered the movie on one family's experience with schizophrenia that is called "Canvas". The basic plot of the movie is a story about a child learns to work with the challenges faced in growing up with a mother wwho has schizophrenia. The movie is now launching and we encourage you to check it out, and tell others about it, and get your support group talking about it. Visit the Canvas web site for more info.
Here is the message from NAMI:
Just in time for Mental Illness Awareness Week (October 7-13), the movie CANVAS is being released in Chicago and New York on Friday, to be followed by three other cities next week. If Friday and Saturday ticket sales run high in these five cities, the release may expand to 200 cities nationwide.
Starring Emmy Award-winner Joe Pantoliano and Academy Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden, CANVAS is the story of a family's struggle with schizophrenia. It educates as well as entertains. It will build awareness about mental illness and strike a blow against stigma--but only if enough people see it. In order for the movie to reach a nationwide audience, please take action to help:
Spread the word! Please forward this email now with a personal message to family and friends in the cities below—and friends elsewhere.
If you live in one of the five cities, go see the movie on a Friday or Saturday. Take a friend. Go in a group. Hold a discussion afterwards.
