Pima County Safety and Justice Challenge to Screen Documentaries on Mental Health and Incarceration

Posted By on Thu, Jun 21, 2018 at 12:30 AM

Explore the challenges of life after incarceration for those with mental illness with The Pima County Safety and Justice Challenge this Thursday. The program will present a day of discussions and documentaries at The Loft Cinema that spotlight this subject.

Featured films include Public Broadcasting’s The Released, a 54-minute documentary following a paranoid schizophrenic living in a homeless shelter, and Arizona Public Media’s Not Broken, which follows a group of young locals with mental illness trying to avoid incarceration.

In between the films, attendees can grab a complimentary lunch and sit in on a panel discussion led by Safety and Justice Challenge Program Manager Terrence Cheung. The panel will feature Gisela Telis, co-director of Not Broken; Sgt. Jason Winsky of the Tucson Police Department’s Mental Health Support Team and NAMI Southern Arizona executive director Clarke Romans. The
Safety and Justice Challenge will also reveal an outreach program during the day’s events.

The free event runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, June 21 at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. RSVP for the event on Eventbrite. For more details, please visit The Loft's website.
