Sunday 14th January 2018, 11:30 am – 3.45 pm
What can we learn from those who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience? The CRAZYWISE film adds a voice to the growing conversation that believes a psychological crisis can be an opportunity for growth and potentially transformational, not a disease with no cure.
CRAZYWISE follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Through interviews with renowned mental health professionals including Gabor Mate, MD, Robert Whitaker, and Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, Phil explores the growing severity of the mental health crisis in America dominated by biomedical psychiatry. He discovers a growing movement of professionals and psychiatric survivors who demand alternative treatments that focus on recovery, nurturing social connections, and finding meaning.
