Post-screening discussion:
- Sunday, March 13 at 2:30 pm, with the director Catherine Mullins, the screenwriter and actor Alo Azimov, and a healthcare specialist

Myriam Anouk and Alo have spent years seeking effective treatment within a mental health system that has medicated them but failed to address the roots of their suffering. Saving Minds captures their intimate stories as they navigate their way to recovery. With added insights from experts in the field, and the candid testimony of author Joanne Greenberg (I Never Promised You a Rose Garden), the film gives viewers a ringside seat as a new approach to mental health care begins to take shape; one that moves beyond the biological-medical model towards a more therapeutic and empathetic approach that puts the patient first and uses medication cautiously.
