School to host film screening on World Mental Health Day, Oct. 10

On World Mental Health Day, Thursday, Oct. 10, the UNC School of Social Work will host a screening of Hidden Pictures, an award-winning new film about global mental health.

Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston, who grew up in the shadow of her dad’s schizophrenia, explores the hidden struggles faced by the 450 million people living with mental illness worldwide. Through deeply personal stories involving bipolar illness, depression, schizophrenia and anxiety in India, China, Africa, France and the U.S., Hidden Pictures reveals a global epidemic of silence on mental health, as well as moments of profound compassion and remarkable change.

The screening is free and open to the public. It will be held in the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

For questions, contact faculty members Tara Bohley.
