MHA Hosts Free Film Screening: "Holden On"

Based on a true story, "Holden On" is based on a true story of 17-year old Holden who devolves from a gregarious, small-town Georgian football player to a lost, self-medicating prophet. The film, set in the 1990's, portrays the complexity of mental illness and suicide in teens, offers insight to prevention, and opens the door to conversation about this difficult but critical community concern. Following the screening, MHA will facilitate a panel discussion, including Film Director Tamlin Hall. Attendees of MHA's Wake Up for Wellness breakfast will remember hearing Tamlin say, "Holden was one of the only kids in my school who treated me like a human being instead of a punching bag. Holden’s humanity shined until the day he took his life - that humanity gave me purpose to tell his story."
 
Join us Sunday, August 19 from 3:00-5:15 p.m. at Queens University, Ketner Auditorium of Sykes Building—1900 Selwyn Avenue, Charlotte.
