NAMI Middlesex County & IFSS Online Spring Speaker Series: “Cracking Up: Stand Up for Mental Health”
A Voice Award Winning Documentary, Directed by Tara Shortt, Created by David Granirer
Laughter is the Best Medicine and Comedy is a Powerful tool to help change public stigma! Cracking Up is a Voice Award Winning Documentary that follows a year in the life of Stand Up For Mental Health (SMH). In this documentary you will see a group of twelve courageous and naturally gifted people who suffer the stigma of mental illness on a daily basis. Many of them have survived suicide attempts, psychotic breaks and have been in and out of institutions for years. But ultimately, they set out to confront their challenges and find humor in some of their most horrible and emotionally painful experiences. SMH creates a positive and inclusive platform for people to share stories and laughter and contribute towards breaking down and helping end stigma.
