Summary When filmmaker Kathy Leichter moved back into her childhood home after her mother's suicide, she discovered a hidden box of audiotapes. Sixteen years passed before she had the courage to delve into this trove, unearthing details that her mother had recorded about every aspect of her life from the joys and challenges of her marriage to a State Senator, to her son's estrangement, to the highs and lows of living with bipolar disorder. Here one day is a beautiful, emotionally candid film about a woman coping with mental illness, her relationships with her family, and the ripple effects of her suicide on those she loved. Here one day is being used in classrooms across the world to teach how mental illness and suicide impact families, reduce stigma, raise awareness, and educate the policymakers and mental health professionals of the future. "... a brilliantly insightful examination of mental illness ... highly recommended." -Educational Media Reviews Online. "Three Stars! Artful and affecting...a powerful, personal story." -Video Librarian. "Here One Day is a deeply moving film that is both breathtaking and heartbreaking in its honesty. Mental health professionals, educators, clergy, students - and anyone who has ever known someone who struggles with deep emotional pain - have much to learn from this wonderful film."-Jennifer T. D'Andrea, Ph.D., Director, Counseling and Psychological Services, Wesleyan University. "This beautiful and haunting film offers a captivating, thought-provoking look at mental illness and family dynamics. To understand what patients and families experience and to bring them on board to help with what may be life-saving treatment, this is a must-see for mental health students and professionals, as well as the general public." -Dr. Ira Glick, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Department of Psychiatry, Stanford University School of Medicine.
