The Stockton Center on Successful Aging and the Lighthouse International Film Society are sponsoring a free documentary film, That Way Madness Lies, and Q&A on Friday, November 3, 2017 at 7pm, in the Alton Auditorium at Stockton University, 101 Vera King Farris Dr., Galloway, NJ 08205.
Sandra Luckow’s documentary film That Way Madness Lies tells of a family upended by escalating mental illness, arrests, incarcerations and their quest to find mental health care. This film will unnerve you and infuriate you as Sandra is thwarted at every turn in attempting to find care for her brother. He is but one of the many most vulnerable in society who need but cannot attain proper mental health care. A film not to be missed if you have been touched by mental illness. Suggested for nurses, ER staff, social workers, first responders, police, counselors, students and caregivers.One that should be seen by policy makers and those who care about the care and treatment of people living with mental illness in America.
“The title of the film, THAT WAY MADNESS LIES…is a quote from Shakespeare’s King Lear, Act III, Scene IV. It speaks to the complications of dealing with mental illness, and our own uncertainties as to which direction we should pursue towards wellness and peace. It is my greatest hope that this film will be an agent for changing the way we deal with our mental health in America,” says director Luckow.
