Jon Ramos, Program Coordinator, Ohio Coordinating Center for ACT reports:
Both events were great successes and the screening proved extremely valuable. There was some very rich discussion at the conclusion of MINDS ON THE EDGE. Many of the questions and comments were focused on how to get the word out and how to effectively support change in the mental health and criminal justice systems. It was agreed by many that the first step to change is education, which is exactly why we held these two events in the first place. All attendees were strongly encouraged to go to the website and explore the tools and resources related to this DVD/project. Our hope is that, through these events, more people will be motivated to facilitate positive change through education and exposure. The media project MINDS ON THE EDGE has been, and will continue to be, extremely valuable as a catalyst for system change and in helping mental health consumers achieve recovery.
