LOANER COPIES OF DVD ON TRAUMA RECOVERY NOW AVAILABLE

If you missed the September NAMI Speaker's Meeting at which Academy Award-winning film maker Margaret Lazerus screened her short documentary, “Strong at the Broken Places: Recovery after Trauma,” she has graciously donated two copies of the DVD to NAMI Southern Santa Barbara County, and they are available for viewing on short-term loan. The film describes how four individuals, each having suffered devastating, traumatic events, found a path forward to recovery from the trauma. Since many people living with serious mental illness also have a history of trauma, this film is a must-see for anyone with lived experience or having a family member with lived experience. To borrow a copy of the DVD for home viewing, contact Ramona Winner, Family Advocate, at 884-8440 ext. 3206, rwinner@mentalwellnesscenter.org
