October 18, 2019:
Exclusive Film Screening - Bedlam: The Film That Helped Halt Plans for a Los Angeles Mental Health Jail
Historic Carver Theater
2101 Orleans Ave.,
New Orleans, LA 70116

Bedlam - Inside America's Mental Health Crisis will air on PBS in 2020 but New Orleanians will have a rare opportunity to catch an exclusive screening on October 18th.

Set in downtown Los Angeles, Bedlam exposes the over-representation of people who struggle with serious mental illnesses who live homeless and incarcerated. After it's debut at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors reversed their decision to build a mens mental health jail in favor of building a mental health center instead. Join the movement that is shattering silence about serious mental illness!
