The 2019 feature film, Coming Up For Air, a project of the Heartland Independent Film Forum based in Muskegon, Michigan, is a unique opportunity to reach those who can benefit today from readily available treatment. The film focuses on the impact of mental health on families as told through the story of a young college student who is also a competitive diver. The film is set for national theatrical release in the fall of 2019.

Sanilac CMH and Sandusky Presbyterian Church; along with local partners, are bringing a preview of this film, along with a panel discussion of local resources, to the Sandusky Presbyterian Church at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28th. This ninety-minute Coming Up For Air preview event will include four preview scenes from the film plus an introduction from the producer/co-screenwriter.

Following a presentation by the film’s production team, community mental health experts detail the readily available services that can prevent tragedy and give hope to families everywhere. The mission of the film is to inspire empathy for individuals and their families, explore the complexities of personal responsibility, demonstrate how crisis intervention can prevent tragedy and foster community discussion of mental health and its stigmas.
