Our Screenings Are Used To:
Reduce stigma around mental illness and suicide.
Create a safe space for others to share their experiences.
Link audiences to local, national, and international support.
Teach how mental illness and suicide impact entire families.
The Here One Day Community Screening Initiative began in 2012 with full-house screenings at some of the most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world and has continued in over 100 educational institutions and communities and counting.
How do the screenings work?
"The mental health profession works every day to reduce stigma, raise awareness and hope that people will reach out for services. It is events like this film, Kathy’s work, and her family’s story that will knock the walls of stigma down. It was an honor to be in the audience and witness an event that touched the soul of everyone in the room. All of our lives are better understood after viewing this film.”
-Valerie Ainsworth, LCSW-R, Executive Director, Mental Health Association in Essex County, NY
We work closely with national organizations and educational institutions across the country to schedule screenings and discussions facilitated in person by the film’s award-winning director, Kathy Leichter. You may also host a screening and virtual discussion via Skype.

Here One Day was recently nominated for a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Voice Award, which honors outstanding contributions in the field of mental health education.
"Kathy’s presentation of “Here One Day” was one of the most successful events NAMI Finger Lakes has hosted. The audience was absorbed in the film. Discussion was open and emotional. People stayed to talk for an hour after the program ended. It was a wonderful program."
-Jean Poland, President, NAMI Finger Lakes
