CRAZYWISE SCREENING IN RUTLAND

Post-Screening Discussion and Refreshments with Cast Member Gogo Ekhaya

Vermont Psychiatric Survivors will host a free screening of the feature-length documentary Crazywise on May 16, 2018, at 6:00 p.m. at the Franklin Conference
Center, 1 Scale Avenue in Rutland.

After the 82-minute screening, cast member Gogo Ekhaya will participate in a post-screening discussion about the film. Hearty, complimentary refreshments will be served.

Tickets are free and can be reserved at crazywiserutland.brownpapertickets.com.

The film follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation. Ekhaya, 32, survives several suicide attempts before spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer. CRAZYWISE introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.

Crazywise explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crises into a positive transformative experience.

Vermont Psychiatric Survivors is an independent, statewide mutual support and civil rights advocacy organization with a mission to end psychiatric coercion, oppression, and discrimination through mutual support and advocacy.
