Mental Health Awareness Month: Watch "The Rest of Us"

To coincide with Mental Health Awareness month, TheArchive is proud to announce the acquisition of THE REST OF US.

Directed by Dr. Linda G. Mills, artist, author, scholar and Executive Director of NYU's Center on Violence and Recovery, THE REST OF US chronicles student resilience in the face of a mental health crisis on the campus of Blair University. Set in the Fall of 2001, a diverse group of college students spring into action when confronted by the reality of a suicide. 
The film follows Amy (Amanda Debraux), an introverted engineering student whose resistance, and resilience, inspires those who are left behind -- the rest of us. 

"Each person's struggle is a call to action," Mills said. "THE REST OF US provides a compelling dose of inspiration and insight that can help transform our response to the mental health crisis in this country."

Mills has been producing and directing movies with a particular focus on social change for nearly a decade and is the Lisa Ellen Goldberg Professor at New York University. 

The film is produced by Beth Davenport, David Komar, Mary Stuart Masterson, and social change strategist Hediya Sizar, a champion of sustainable impact. 

"At a time when mental health has never been more critical to every facet of our wellbeing, we felt it not only our honor but obligation to release THE REST OF US," says Darrin Holender President of Multicom Entertainment. "Linda has peeled back a moving and essential look into the mental health condition of our next generation. We need to share this film with as many people as possible in hopes that it can help save lives." 

THE REST OF US is available via iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon, VUDU and FandangoNow, DISH, and Comcast OnDemand.
