The Journey Home

A Canadian feature documentary "The Journey Home" produced as part of the The Family Guide to Mental Health Recovery project, by The Mission Media Company Inc. Family members share how their families took steps to get on the road to recovery.


Part 2 of 3, "Overcoming the Silence" focuses on the various interpretations of mental illness in our community, fears and stigma - and highlights the many individuals and families that are overcoming stigma and their own fears to share their story and reach out to others.


Part 3 of 3 "Road to Recovery" explores the experience of family members finding the road to recovery for their loved, for themselves and for the whole family. Self-care for family members, acceptance & patience, balance and resilience are key aspects of making it through the "marathon" that mental health recovery can often ask families to undertake.
