The Mental Illness Education Project Videos

The Project's videotapes are designed to be used in hospital, clinical and educational settings, and at home by individuals and families. Low selling prices ensure that the tapes can be afforded by all who are concerned with mental illness. Printed support materials will accompany each videotape to provide further insights and resources. Net income is invested in continuing educational production.

Families Coping with Mental Illness
Who can profit from the tape? Family members of people with serious mental illness will find the tape supportive and informative. Mental health professionals from all fields will gain important insights into what families face.


The Bonnie Tapes
Bonnie--an attractive and articulate young woman with schizophrenia--in discussions with her family and with mental health professionals.
General audiences will find Bonnie's account of coping with schizophrenia a revelation. She and her family provide a much needed picture of the possibilities of recovering from mental illness.
