Event description

Description

The world shifts when every living person develops a mental illness. A small community of strangers and family must fight through the chaos and learn to cope with their new symptoms. Emily, who was diagnosed bipolar previously, struggles to help her schizophrenic neighbor and her sister through panic attacks. Psychiatrists rob pharmacies of their medications. Suicides spread over the news. A family struggles to survive. With portraits of 7 different mental illnesses, A CASE STUDY IN DIAGNOSTICS AND EMPATHY, asks us to reexamine how we interact with mental illness.
