This Is My Brave Film Being Revealed Thursday In Washington D.C. Area

(1-28-19) Inspiring stories of recovery offer others hope.

I was delighted to be Jennifer Marshall’s guest last week when she was named one of ten Washingtonians of the Year.

Jennifer is the driving force behind the non-profit This Is My Brave, which gives persons with mental illnesses a platform for sharing their poignant stories of recovery. Jennifer and my son, Kevin, first met when both of them were in group therapy and, as regular readers of this blog know, I frequently cite Jennifer as an example of how one determined individual can have a huge impact for good.

This is another big week for This Is My Brave.

This Thursday, January 31st, the non-profit will be previewing a mini-documentary in the Washington D.C. area about its mission.

Kevin and I will be there so be certain to attend and say hello if you live in the DMV.

From the Filmmaker…

What excites you most about the film project with This Is My Brave?
“This is a story whose time has come. Mental illness touches all of our lives in some way and I am in awe of the people who are coming forward to share their stories with the world. A theme I have returned to again and again in my work – and something I think is so important to remind ourselves of – is that change is possible. It is possible to break down barriers. End stigmas. Change ourselves. Inspire those around us to do the same. I believe THIS IS MY BRAVE makes all of those things possible, and I’m excited to capture it on film and to share it with as broad an audience as possible.” -Beth Murphy, Founder/Director/Producer at Principle Pictures
