SAMHSA Honors 'The Sopranos,' 'Monk,' 'Dirt' at Star-Studded Voice Awards in Los Angeles
Date:5/29/2008

p>Canvas, Reign Over Me, and Home of the Brave won in the film category. Based on writer-director Joe Greco's own experiences growing up with a mother with schizophrenia, Canvas tells the story of a family dealing with the challenges of a loved one's mental illness. Reign Over Me, starring Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle, explores the rekindled relationship between college roommates after one experiences post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) upon losing his family during the September 11 terrorist attacks. In another look at PTSD, Home of the Brave presented what happens when four American soldiers return home from Iraq to deal in civilian life with the memories of war.

Documentary winners included Cracking Up, Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, Through My Eyes, and the MTV documentary series "True Life," for its "True Life: I Have Autism" and "True Life: I Have Tourette's Syndrome" episodes.

Cracking Up depicts a year in the life of 12 individuals who use laughter as therapy and face their mental illnesses through the use of stand-up comedy. For his film, British actor and comedian Stephen Fry interviewed celebrities including Robbie Williams, Carrie Fisher, Richard Dreyfuss, and others about the impact of bipolar disorder and how they have recovered.

In Through My Eyes, Emmy-winning producer Linda Midgett educates teens about mental health issues by filming the moving testimonies of their peers who have mental health challenges.

In MTV's "True Life" episodes, young people share how they deal with their disorders in their own words and illustrate that they are still able to live life to the fullest.

The Voice Awards bestowed its Consumer Leadership Award on five mental health advocates and community leaders -- Joan Esnayra, Arlington, Va.; Sharon Wise, Washington, D.C.; Paula Comunelli, Santa Cruz, Calif.; Herminio Maldonado, New York City; and Marley Prunty-Lara, Minneapolis -- and its Young Adult Leadership Award
