Tonight's special guest is Nick Kelso from Tucson, Arizona. Although not a survivor himself, Nick has more than a dozen years of experience empowering underserved populations through grassroots movements with nonprofits, arts-focused startups, and community organizations. His documentary film, 'Is Your Story Making You Sick?', focuses on the healing power of a story, and how people can rewrite the toxic stories they tell themselves. The film reveals how individuals battling addiction, trauma, and depression can change their stories and transcend their pain through ‘Narrative Therapy’ interactive and cutting-edge practices that help individuals rewrite their story. The film provides a step-by-step depiction of how to conduct these healing exercises. Nick strives to connect with leading organizations and individuals in the mental health fields working to destigmatize the long shadows of addiction and trauma. In Nick’s own words, “I'm not a survivor. But I support and represent my friends and family who are. I came to this film from years of working in the grassroots nonprofit fields of youth work, education, community radio, and community art house theater. It's an honor to work towards helping others who are underserved or underheard, and as an activist at heart I find causes that I believe in and dive in! It's an honor for me to represent a film that's being seen as a resource for survivors - and we hope the project can be a valuable tool for growth and healing.”
