Beyond Britney and Lindsay: Film Screening and Discussion of "Demi Lovato: Stay Strong"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A film screening and a discussion of how storytelling in films about mental health and addiction can lead to change.

 

The media just can't get enough stories of celebrity, addiction, and mental health. But do these stories help or hinder the recovery of people with behavioral health struggles?

 

Actress and singer Demi Lovato's documentary is a boldly candid look at the Disney-turn-pop star's journey of recovery and her first tour after rehab. Perez Hilton (yes, we are quoting him) says "Demi Lovato has gone above and beyond to very honestly - and very bravely - share her struggles with the public and her fan base, as to raise awareness on the issues plaguing many young people."

 

Time will be allotted following the screening for a brief discussion about the film itself, the role of storytelling in educating and empowering people, and how productions like this one impact the national conversation about behavioral health. Space is limited, so please RSVP. Can't join us? Follow us on Twitter at @vancomm #plpr #benmedfest.

Joe Kelly - Executive Vice President 

Brenda Foster - Vice President of Account Services
