"I’m Good Bro: Unmasking Black Male Depression" is a riveting documentary about mental health and its struggles from the black male perspective. The Orange County Department on Aging will present a free screening and dinner on Thursday, Feb. 6, at the Passmore Center in Hillsborough (103 Meadowlands Drive).

The free event begins at 6 p.m. and includes a complimentary dinner. Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, Jan. 29. Call (919) 245-2015 for information and to register.

This film addresses the historical impact of depression in its many forms, from the roots of slavery, those who were formally incarcerated, the impact on day-to-day personal and professional relationships, and the effects on and from the church. This documentary follows the journey of individuals with firsthand experience dealing with depression from the perspective of those who have personally dealt with or who have been diagnosed with the disease. This film also provides professional insight from counselors, licensed professional therapists and spiritual advisers.

Please join us for the showing and an in depth Q&A session with the producers of the film, 4C Visuals Group, immediately following.

In case of inclement weather, the makeup date is Thursday, Feb. 13.
