The Horizon Foundation’s Mental Health Film Festival is an event to build awareness and compassion for members of our community facing mental health challenges. This year, the Foundation is celebrating its 20th anniversary and launching a new strategic plan with a deep emphasis on mental health. The event follows the first Mental Health Film Festival held in 2016, which drew a sold-out crowd with hundreds of people.
The 2018 event drew 300 people to the UA Snowden Square Stadium in Columbia for an evening of film, discussion and reflection.
“Mental health challenges are not just a personal struggle; they are a larger public health concern,” said Horizon Foundation Senior Program Officer Tiffany Callender. “We are here because mental health shouldn’t be a hidden conversation in our community.”
The Horizon Foundation thanks all our Mental Health Film Festival partners: Chase Brexton • Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center • Howard County General Hospital • Howard County Health Department • Humanim • NAMI Howard County • Sheppard Pratt • Way Station
