Free Movie and Panel Discussion for Mental Illness Awareness Week
Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoë Saldana
This year, 1 in 5 adults in the US will experience a mental health issue; 1 in 25 will experience a mental illness severe enough to limit major life activities. Additionally, 1 in 5 youth will experience a severe mental disorder in their lifetime. Fewer than 50% of these people will seek treatment. These are our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers, our children, our parents. Infinitely Polar Bear tells the story of a dad with bi-polar disorder struggling as the prime caretaker of his two daughters, starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoë Saldana.
Anchorage Community Mental Health Services, Inc. and NAMI – Anchorage will host a brief panel discussion following the movie. Tickets will be available at the Bear Tooth box-office only starting Tuesday, October 1st at 10:30 am. Two tickets per person max, first come first served.
