Compass & Light: A Series on Mental Health is a 7-part documentary series that tells the story of those affected by mental illness and gives practical knowledge about the varying issues surrounding mental health. This series consists of seven short films covering the topics of anxiety, bipolar, depression, addiction, eating disorders, PTSD and suicide. As we listen to one another's stories and are bold in sharing our own, we can create a community where we are all fully known and fully loved.
Mental health is one of the most complex and far-reaching issues in our community. It crosses every racial and socio-economic line. It affects 1 in 5 people in the United States. Yet, it is an issue that is greatly misunderstood and our community is woefully under-equipped to serve those struggling with their mental health. Since we are called to actively love our neighbors, we need to learn how to embrace this part of our community.
While this is only one of seven short films, please be sure to watch the other stories in this series as they are all on RightNow Media.
