Event Details

 University of Phoenix® Detroit Campus, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department, the Emagine Theatre and the Digital Arts, Film & Television (DAFT) invite mental health and law enforcement professionals, and the community to a screening of the documentary, “Of Two Minds,” which explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and successes of a few of the over five million Americans living with bipolar disorder and the social stigma that surrounds their illness.

The event takes place on Tuesday, August 27th, 2013, beginning at 10:00 a.m., at the Emagine Theatre in Royal Oak, MI.                         

Highly acclaimed, “Of Two Minds,” raises interesting questions about mental health and its affect on society and the barriers that exist to those seeking counseling. These barriers directly impact how society perceives mental illness, especially with education and law enforcement. Recent research has shown that outpatient treatment of mental illness significantly reduces arrest rates for people with mental health problems.

10:00 - 10:15 AM:   Intro of directors, Intro of film

10:15 – 11:45 AM:  Screening “Of Two Minds”

11:45 AM – 12:00 PM:  General comments, Q&A with directors (in theatre)

12:00 – 1:00 PM:  Breakout Sessions (2 locations)

In theatre:  Mental Illness and the Community - This session will include a panel discussion from University of Phoenix faculty members who will discuss the impact mental illness plays on the community.

            In conference room: Mental Illness’ Effect on Law Enforcement

             Oakland County Sherriff’s Department representatives will speak on:

  • Signs to look for in individuals that might be associated with mental illness
  • How to approach these individuals
  • When to seek the assistance of mental health professionals when dealing with a situation

 

In a recent survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of University of Phoenix in March, 2013, nearly 32 percent of Americans have sought professional counseling for mental health issues. Of that 32 percent, 38 percent of individuals who ever sought or received counseling, experienced barriers that made it either difficult or not possible for them to receive these services. Of those who experienced barriers to counseling, the majority of respondents, 57 percent, said those barriers prevented them from receiving these services.

 

 

 We hope to see you there!
