Healing Voices

HEALING VOICES is a new feature length documentary which explores the experiences commonly labeled “psychosis” or “mental illness” through the real life experiences of individuals working to overcome extreme mental states and integrate these experiences in their lives in meaningful ways.

The film follows three subjects — Oryx, Jen and Dan — over a period of nearly five years and features interviews with many notable personalities on the history of psychiatry and the rise of the “medical model” in mental health treatment.

By way of the harrowing and inspiring stories of individuals learning to negotiate and grow through their madness, HEALING VOICES challenges us to rethink our understanding of mental illness by bringing a message of recovery and charing a course for effective alternative treatments that enable people to  live productive and meaningful lives.
