"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Free Film series on the Ethics of Mental Health

There's nothing like getting information a little too late.
But although it's too late for this evening's screening, there are two additional films the following two Mondays (February 4 and February 11).

You are invited to a free public screening tonight (Mon., Jan.28, 7:00PM) of the film Awakenings, starring Robert DeNiro and Robin Williams. Complimentary refreshments will be available at the break, followed by a panel discussion led by patient representatives and experts in public and mental health, bioethics, psychiatry and psychology. The event will be held at the Halifax Infirmary, 1796 Summer Street, inside the Royal Bank Theatre. This is the second of a four-part film series on the ETHICS OF MENTAL HEALTH hosted by Novel Tech Ethics (Dept. of Bioethics, Dalhousie University) that also includes:





- What?s Eating Gilbert Grape ? Mon. Feb.4 (7:00PM)

- Thumbsucker ? Mon. Feb.11 (7:00PM)


Please help us advertise this event by posting this message as soon as possible to your friends, family, co-workers, and any relevant e-mailing lists, listservs, websites, news bulletins or blogs to which you may have access.
