"In the end, we're all hiding beneath a mask of one kind or another. With our disguise and our protection, too, we may think we're all alone, but we're everywhere. We're online, in the class, down the hall, at the mall, or even just down the street." -excerpt from Faces: Unmasking Mental Illness, a 35-minute film that was made in partnership of Spring Lake Park High School, Riverwind Crisis Services and MWCAC.
