Movies for Mental Health events leverage Art With Impact’s world-class library of short films to engage students on the topic of mental health with the goal of reducing stigma around mental illness and encouraging early intervention. Our interactive two-hour workshops are hosted by colleges and universities throughout many states in the U.S., and deeply engage both students and community.

It was very inspiring seeing others with mental illness, makes me realize that there is hope, and that life is worth living."
