Mental illness is better understood than it once was.  But people who have lived through mental illness and people who work with them say there is still a long road ahead. 

The regional chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, NAMI-Southern Oregon, works to bring stories of mental illness to a general audience with a Movies For Mental Health Film Fest, this weekend (May 18-19) in Ashland and Grants Pass.  Festival Co-chair Sherry McCowan and student panelist Curtis Ziegler visit.
