NLCMH videos shown at New York festival!

The Mental Health Association of the Southern Tier of Binghamton, New York, will hold a film series, “Into the Light,”  for three weeks this month.

The schedule includes showings of “Look Closer: See Me for Who I Am,” a film made by peers at the Northern Lakes Community Mental Health about their lives and experiences, and “To See What I See: The Stigma of Mental Illness,” a film made by the people served by Northern Lakes about their efforts to dispel stigma in their community.

We think it is pretty cool that our community inclusion and recovery efforts have spread far and wide and people recovering here in northern Michigan are helping people all over the country!
