Hidden Pictures: A Personal Journey into Global Mental Health

USA 2013. Director: Delaney Ruston - 57min.

VANCOUVER PREMIERE • The statistics are staggering. According to the World Health Organization, as many as 450 million people worldwide suffer from mental illness. Access to care depends on where you reside: in the developing world, fully 80% of those experiencing a severe mental disorder receive no treatment at all. Lack of funding, education, and the prevalence of stigma all contribute to this dire state of affairs -- a situation compassionately explored in physician/filmmaker Delaney Ruston’s latest film, Hidden Pictures.
