The funds will go toward screenings of The Quell Foundation's documentary, Lift the Mask - Portraits of Life with Mental Illness.
"This generous grant allows The Quell Foundation to continue normalizing the conversation around mental health and co-occurring substance use disorders which may accompany them, through national screenings of 'Lift the Mask Portraits of Life with Mental Illness," said The Foundation CEO Kevin M.
