ONE IN FIVE AMERICANS SUFFER FROM A MENTAL DISORDER.
THIS IS ONE FAMILY'S STORY.
After a Missouri high school loses three students to suicide, Mark Norwine (a mental health advocate) embarks on a 200-mile walk across the state, seeking to educate students and better understand the epidemic for himself. Mark is joined by his son, Eric, but when the road proves difficult, father and son must confront their own mental health struggles, which they've kept secret for so long. Endorsed by universities and mental health organizations across the U.S., Walking Man is an honest look at one family's journey with mental illness.
Below is a behind the scenes look at the filming of the movie.
