Cinema Medica Presents:
RADAR (Recovery Advocacy Documentary Action Research)
RADAR is a collective of consumer survivors and academics making short films about mental illness — a product of a research project led by Dr. Robert Whitley of McGill University and The Douglas Mental Health University Institute in Montreal. One of the project’s main goals is to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental illness by giving consumer survivors the opportunity to tell their own stories. For the past 18 months, RADAR has provided members of Sound Times Support Services in Toronto with equipment and training to allow them to conceive and produce their own short documentary videos about issues surrounding mental health.
Featuring a selection of short films created by consumer survivors followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers!
Admission is free but seating is limited.
Date: Tuesday, Jan 9th
Location: Mount Sinai Hospital, 9th floor, room 939
