Unlisted:A Story of Schizophrenia

Yesterday, was R U OK? Day a national imitative aimed at reducing suicide by encouraging everday Australians to reach out to friends, neighbours, co-workers and ask “Are you OK” and be able to guide them to help when it’s needed.

Yesterday was also the monthly meeting of the Liverpool/Fairfield Mental Health Carers Support Group at Cabra-Vale Diggers.

We watched a documentary movie called UNLISTED:A Story of Schizophrenia. It’s Delaney Ruston’s story about her ten-year estrangement from father, their reconciliation, and the conflicts around caring for him that have existed since her youth.

Unlisted: A Story of Schizophrenia is a soul-searching examination into the nature of responsibility—of parents and children, of physicians and patients, of society and citizens towards those afflicted with severe mental illness.

Here’s a short excerpt from the movie:
