Beyond Silence Film Screening

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

May Mental Health Month stands to raise awareness of the positive impacts that mental health and wellness can have in individuals’ lives while celebrating those who are living in recovery. The key thing to remember as we come together to support this important cause is that prevention works, treatment is effective, and individuals with mental health conditions can live full and productive lives! Join NAMI Dane County in its mission to start the conversation about mental health with this powerful movie screening co-produced by Demi Lovato and NAMI.

About the documentary: Meet Jeff, Lauren and Lloyd, three different people who share one common experience—their lives have been transformed by speaking up for mental health. The film provides a glimpse into their lives and their diagnoses—which include bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression and anxiety—ultimately weaving together a story about how speaking up is key to living well. Beyond Silence, directed by Shaul Schwarz and executive produced by Demi Lovato, celebrates the strength, perseverance and dedication of these courageous individuals determined to break through the silence often associated with mental illness and help others along the way.

This event is sponsored by NAMI Dane County and Madison Public Library
