Extra Ordinary People


Argument and logic have not convinced people to end discrimination against people living with mental health or substance abuse problems. But understanding how discrimination truly affects people can persuade us to change our attitudes.

Extra Ordinary People

A New Feature Length Documentary by Laura Sky exposes the impact of discrimination experienced by people living with mental health and substance abuse problems and shows the dignity, spirit and hope found in recovery.

Running Time: 109 minutes (Content can be adjusted to suit the audience using chapter selection – contact Krasman Centre for advice)
