On the road ... to find out is a documentary film that explores issues related to the re-location of people with mental illness, from smaller communities in order to access mental health services. The film is intended to be a discussion starter.
What happens when people are taken out of their natural social setting after they become mentally ill? What are the positive and negative effects of re-location? Where is home once someone has been relocated for an extended period?
The documentary was commissioned by Columbian Centre, Nanaimo, BC and produced and directed by filmmaker Paul Manly. 

Manly worked with people who have accessed services, local service providers and specialists, and Columbian Centre staff to produce what is a first-ever documentary film about some of the challenges facing mental health services and patients.

Paul Manly’s work gives expression to three individuals who experienced re-location as well as to those people who have provided support.
