This project was developed by M- Power (Massachusetts People/Patients Organized for Wellness, Empowerment, and Rights). It was funded through the 2008 Campaign for Mental Health Recovery state implementation awards.
M-Power produced a documentary film, Young Adult Portraits of Culture, Diagnosis and Mental Health Recovery, featuring young adults from diverse ethnic communities describing attitudes and experiences related to mental health recovery in their culture. The documentary consists of 14 individual interviews with young adults and cultural experts. The film has been screened at more than 20 locations and 233 people have seen the film. M-Power has received 32 requests for copies of the documentary on DVD and plans to post the film on YouTube and host a screening for Massachusetts legislators at the statehouse in September.
