Our goal is to finish and launch the documentary PIECE OF MIND in 2019.  If you are moved by the trailer, please make a tax-deductible donation in any amount now to support completion of this important film.  All donors will receive a Thank You letter from the filmmaker.

We launched a GoFundMe page to raise $10,000 for three months to take PIECE OF MIND to the next stage of completion.
These funds are for:
– Camera person and equipment for six days of filming.
– Continue to edit the footage for the rough-cut stage.
– Create more artwork as appropriate to illustrate the thoughts and feelings of the people in the film.

On the page watch the video with introduction by Sheila Ganz, Director, find out more about the people in the film, and decide on the Reward you want for the donation levels.  You can make a donation on the GoFundMe page.
Or, if you prefer your generous donation be tax-deductible and still get your rewards click here Donate.

We are seeking NGO and stakeholder partners in the fields of education and research in mental illness and suicide prevention.  Upon completion the film will screen at film festivals and communities across the country for service providers, law enforcement, faith-based communities, educational institutions, and other venues.  PIECE OF MIND will air on public television.

Everyday, I am reminded of the importance of getting help for persons living with serious mental illness in the news, through experiences of families in NAMI, National Alliance on Mental Illness, San Francisco support groups, and daily talks with my sister, who lives with schizophrenia.

Thank you for your generous support!  If you have ideas, or would like to host a fundraiser please email:
