Building a Mental Health Ethics Film Series, Building a Mental Health Ethics Literacy
Journal of Ethics in Mental Health [electronic] 2009 April; 4(1): 1-6

Given the public impact of film as mirror and shaper of our (cultural) understandings of mental health, what better way to build mental health ethics literacy than to: (i) start (at the local level) a film series with panel discussions on mental health ethics issues; and (ii) build critical commentary on mental healthethics issues in and through fi lm with relevant scholarly writing?
