Project Description

"Community Mental Health" is an educational video series about building relationships in your community with people who have mental disorder; Because a neglect to one is a neglect to all. With 1/5 people experiencing a mental disorder in a year, and 60% of counties in America without a single practicing psychiatrist, it is not effective to solely depend on specialized care to provide the needs of people with mental disorders; Especially since all humans have the same psychological needs and therefore can learn to support the needs of others. No matter if we have mental disorder or not, we all need a community. It is in the community that we find a sense of belonging and learn our place in the world.
