Infinitely Polar Bear ~ Mental Health Awareness Week
FREE ADMISSION. Tickets will be available at the Bear Tooth box-office only starting Tuesday, October 1st at 10:30 am. Two tickets per person max, first come first served.
We invite you to join us to for the film Infinitely Polar Bear and a panel discussion for Mental Illness Awareness Week, to fight the stigma of mental illness.
This year, 1 in 5 adults in the US will experience a mental health issue; 1 in 25 will experience a mental illness severe enough to limit major life activities. Additionally, 1 in 5 youth will experience a severe mental disorder in their lifetime. Fewer than 50% of these people will seek treatment. These are our neighbors, our friends, our co-workers, our children, our parents.
Infinitely Polar Bear tells the story of a dad with bi-polar disorder struggling as the prime caretaker of his two daughters, starring Mark Ruffalo and Zoë Saldana.
A brief panel discussion will follow the movie presented by Anchorage Community Mental Health Services, Inc.
