THE STEPPING Stone Centre was standing room only for its free pizza lunch and movie/discussion for National Schizophrenia Awareness Day May 24.

Lunch was followed by the film “Life After Mental Illness.”

The 40 minute film documents the life of Bill MacPhee, who is the CEO and founder of Magpie Media and an individual living with schizophrenia.

The film follows MacPhee’s recovery journey with both a candid look at the devastation schizophrenia can bring, and a humorous and hopeful account of one man’s recovery.

Bill’s company, Magpie Productions, publishes Schizophrenia Digest – an award winning magazine dedicated to providing readers with current information and inspirational articles about Schizophrenia.

In addition to running a publishing company, Bill also does public speaking engagements.
