"Pack Up Your Sorrows" - Documentary Screening with Q&A
"Pack Up Your Sorrows" follows Meg Hutchinson as she learns to live a healthy life with Bipolar Disorder. Through her eyes, viewers will explore different aspects of mood disorders how families try to deal with the illness in their midst, the biology of these diseases of the brain, and the effects of traditional and alternative therapies like medication and meditation. Along the way, Meg seeks to understand the role mental illness has played in the lives of authors and historical figures. She also asks some of her heroes what steps we can take as a society to reduce the epidemic of suicide, especially among young people. Viewers will learn, as Meg has, that these illnesses of the brain are not a moral failing or a character weakness, and that treatment options are improving.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session with Meg Hutchinson and Co-directors Todd Kwait and Rob Stegman.
