(New York, NY) – The National Black Leadership Commission on Health is breaking the  stigma around mental health, maternal health, treatment for addiction and redefining what  we consider as normal with their upcoming film series, “What is Normal?”
The “What is Normal?” film series, May 18th - May 20th at Harlem’s historic AMC Magic  Johnson Theater, 2309 Frederick Douglass Blvd., is a celebration of community and  mental wellness focused on education and advocacy. It is three days of interactive  experiences featuring compelling and thought-provoking films, conversations with expert  panelists and tangible resources and information for next steps in mental wellness,  maternal health and substance treatment within Black communities.

The series begins Thursday, May 18th, 6 - 9 pm with “Our State of Mental Wellness”,  produced by Black Health, New York Public Library, Columbia University Psychiatry, and  Center for Practice Innovations at Columbia Psychiatry and made possible through  support from the Leon Levy Foundation. The evening features short, animated films from  The Community Mental Health Project interwoven with dialogue on mental health stigma,  and the possibilities of where we can go together as an empowered community.
