NAMI screening The Other Brother.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness, (NAMI) will screen The Other Brother at their SC State Conference in Columbia, SC on August 15, 2015. We’re anticipating a Q&A session with an informed audience. We hope they will be able to shed some light on the mental challenges that Jesse faced throughout his lifetime. His challenges were made clear in the 2700 letters written to his mom and sister. We are grateful to Dick Males and Bill Lindsey for creating this opportunity. Mark and I look forward to NAMI screening The Other Brother in SC on August 15, 2015
