Film Series: Alternative Perspectives

The Western Mass RLC has developed an Alternative Perspectives Film Series with the help and support of several co-sponsors.  This series is intended to bring peoplefilm_camera together to hear about ideas and approaches they may not have heard or had the time to fully explore.  The intent of the series is not to necessarily convince any one person to change their perspective, but rather to create a forum for all of us to talk about and explore different ideas on mental health, psychiatric treatments and diagnosis, human rights and oppression and what it all means to us.
Providers of mental health services, doctors, students, teachers, individuals who have been diagnosed or treated within the mental health system,  emergency room and other hospital staff, police officers and other first responders, family and friends of individuals who have received psychiatric diagnoses and all who have an interest in recovery, hope and healing are welcome and encouraged to attend!  We will be offering Continuing Education Credits whenever possible for each event.


Past Film Events: Take These Broken Wings - November, 2010

The Western Mass RLC will continue their fall film series, ‘Alternative Perspectives on Mental Health’ in November with screenings of 'Take These Broken Wings' with filmmaker, Daniel Mackler.  The purpose of the series is to gather individuals across agencies, schools and the community to view films that offer new ideas or alternative perspectives about mental health experiences as a way of encouraging discussion and considering the potential impact and needs in our area.  These screenings are co-sponsored by the Western Mass RLC, the Center for Human Development, the Brien Center, NAMI Berkshire County, Clinical & Support Options, Advocates, Inc, and the Metro Boston RLC.  All screenings are free and open to the public, though some venues have limited seating so it is suggested that you call to reserve your space at (413) 539-5941 ext. 301.
