The Blind Stigma

The award winning, The Blind Stigma discusses mental health within the Black community by chronicling and testifying the stories of five individuals (including Satcy-Ann's) on their trials and triumphs with mental health. It powerfully removes the veil of shame that clouds the topic of mental illness in the Black community, challenge that misconception, give a voice to Black Canadians living with mental illness and leaves the audience more informed and empowered.
