Breaking the Chains and researcher/director Erminia Colucci were featured in an ABC news about Indonesia Mental Health law
PROMISE (PROactive Management of Integrated Services & Environments) made a short-video of the very engaging and thought-proviking discussion following the screening of Breaking the Chains at Cambridge University.

You can watch the video made by PROMISE, with thanks to Dr. Manaan Kar Ray.
