Films foster empathy and can even promote social action. Sharing stories of mental health through video allows viewers to deeply connect with storytellers. When we watch and listen to stories, we begin to expand our own perspectives and understand the lived experiences of others.

Filmmaker Eric Lu (Looking For Luke, Can Kids Get Mental Illness?) joins co-hosts Dr. Gene Beresin and Dr. Steve Schlozman to emphasize the importance and healing power of storytelling through film.

Thank you for joining us in this journey and conversation. We’d love to hear from you!
