NAMI's official partnership of Lifetime's "Call Me Crazy: A Five Film" features a call to action for individuals and families living with mental illness to help shed light on mental illness and encourage understanding and conversation. The film features its notable cast, including Jennifer Hudson, Octavia Spencer and Ernie Hudson, in a series of five shorts focusing on the characters' experiences with mental illness. Powerful relationships built on hope and triumph raise a new understanding of what happens when a loved one struggles with mental illness.
