Turning Point Behavioral Health Care Center presented A Night at the Movies on April 8 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at 27 Live, 1012 Church Street in Evanston. The event, attended by more than 80 supporters included an intimate screening of Doug Blush and Lisa Klein’s critically-acclaimed documentary Of Two Minds exploring life with bipolar disorder. Following the screening was a Q&A session moderated by Turning Point Board Member Robert Carty, featuring award-winning filmmaker Doug Blush, and artist and architect Carlton Davis, one of the six individuals featured in the film. The fundraiser grossed $4,500 to benefit Turning Point’s mission of making comprehensive, high-quality mental health care accessible to all.
On April 9 a standing room only crowd of over 220 attended the public screening and panel discussion on Of Two Minds co-hosted by Turning Point and Skokie Public Library, 5215 Oakton Street in Skokie.
