March 16, 2012 - Free Movie Night in Portland, Ore.

This month's free movie is "One flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" -- a film that showcases many of the problems mental institutions used to struggle with during the 1950's and 1960's.

This movie is a tragic comedy that is painful, honest, and important.

The movie will be introduced by Dr. Dan Smith, who is a Clinical Psychologist at Oregon State Hospital, where much of this movie was filmed. Dr. Dan and our friends with Empower Oregon will lead a short conversation after the movie about what has changed and what is still needed for adequate mental health services in our communities.

This will be an open community forum for folks to come together, enjoy a movie with a message and be part of a good discussion (if you are so inclined).

Thanks for supporting community movie night.
