Seton Hill Hosting Screening of Ken Burns Documentary “Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness” Nov. 10

Seton Hill University is pleased to partner with WQED, Mental Health America of Southwestern PA, and Excela Health to present a screening of the documentary "Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness," on Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. in Seton Hill's Performing Arts Center, 100 Harrison Ave., Greensburg, Pa.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" follows the journeys of more than 20 young Americans from all over the country and all walks of life who have struggled with thoughts and feelings that have troubled - and, at times - overwhelmed them. The documentary, presented by Ken Burns and co-directed by Erik Ewers and Christopher Loren Ewers, presents an unstinting look at both the seemingly insurmountable obstacles faced by those who live with mental disorders and the hope that many have found after that storm. 

The event will include a 30-minute screening of "Hiding in Plain Sight" followed by a panel discussion featuring mental health experts from the Pittsburgh region, who will discuss the issues youth in our area face and the ways we can destigmatize mental illness. 

The panel discussion will be moderated by Beth Dolinar, a producer and writer at WQED-Multimedia, whose documentaries have explored social and mental health issues including opioid addiction, childhood trauma and the challenges facing the children of incarcerated persons.

Panelists include:

  • Charma Dudley, Ph.D., FPPR, Associate Director of Behavioral Health Services/Psychologist Reviewer at Beacon        Health Options;
  • Marci Sturgeon-Rusiewicz, MS, LPC, NCC, CPSS, CPRP, Senior Manager of Recovery and Resiliency at Wesley Family Services;
  • Dawn Diehl, MSW, Instructor and Field Director for the Social Work program at Seton Hill University; and
  • Tina Desport, LCSW, Therapist at Adelphoi’s Dr. Robert Ketterer Charter School.
