Mental Illness in American Film
Film has always found mental illness to be a fascinating subject. In
turn, films have often served to shape how the public comes to understand,
or misunderstand, the nature of mental health problems
and treatment, and even public policy. This duo of films illustrates
both public influence and reaction. They are part of IU’s College
Toolbox Project, a four-year effort to improve the cultural climate of
“difference” for students and the larger community, shown in cooperation
with Glenn Close’s organization, Bring Change to Mind
whose goal is to end stigma toward mental illness.
This series is
sponsored by The College Tool Box Project, Union Board, Culture of
Care, the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Public Health,
the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President. Screenings
are free, but ticketed.
