Description

Healing Minds NOLA invites you to a pre-release screening of the powerful film documentary, "Bedlam". BEDLAM is a harrowing trip inside the epicenter of the national crisis and criminalization of the mentally ill.

WATCH THE TRAILER

While capturing never-before seen footage at a Los Angeles Country Psych ER over five years, psychiatrist/filmmaker Kenneth Rosenberg unveils disturbing realities for hundreds of thousands of homeless people and our nation's disastrous approach to caring for its psychiatric patients.

Please stay for the panel discussion/ audience Q&A afterward to learn about policy solutions to the crisis.
Panelists include:

  • Film maker Dr. Ken Rosenberg (via skype),
  • Barksdale Hortenstine (Orleans Public Defender/Mental Health Unit),
  • John Snook (Executive Director/Treatment Advocacy Center),
  • Special guests to be announced.

*This film won't be available to the general public until Spring 2020. Don't miss your chance to see it in New Orleans on October 18th!
