Pop your corn and grab your favorite theatre candy and dish on movies with a mental health theme. Join NAMI film lovers and community educators Kay King and Wil Sampson-Bernstrom (the Siskell and Ebert of mental illness) for Movie Mondays this summer on Zoom.
4:30 - 5:30 p.m.
Monday, June 22, 2020 - About Schmidt with Jack Nicholson. We'll discuss themes of sadness, grief and depression in older adults
Monday, July 27, 2020 - Silver Linings Playbook with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. We'll discuss themes of bipolar disorder, relationships and family support.
Monday, August 24, 2020 - Lars and the Real Girl with Ryan Gosling. We’ll discuss themes of psychosis, relationships and community support.
Zoom seats are limited so registration is required. Here's what you need to do. Watch each of the movies on your favorite platform. Be ready to vote with King and Sampson-Bernstrom each Movie Monday on how many stars the movie should receive for their handling of the theme of mental illness.
The chat function is restricted so we would appreciate it if you would submit your movie comments to our emails at least two days in advance of each discussion. We will include some of your comments in our mailbag session at the end of each Movie Monday. email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
