Part of the New Day Campaign 2015 Film Series, and shown in conjunction with the exhibition Touched with Fire: A Family Tale at CCBC Dundalk, Dark Side of the Full Moon (2014) delves into the unseen world of maternal mental health, uncovering the disconnect within the medical community to effectively screen, refer, and treat the 1.3 million mothers affected each year. The evening includes a dialogue with Dr. Jennifer Lanier Payne, MD, the Director of the Women's Mood Disorders Center and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins; Nadia Monroe, who suffered from postpartum depression and anxiety after the birth of her first daughter; and the film's director, Maureen Fura.

Every now and again, an artist deeply touches you... the experience transcending mere interest, pleasure, or delight.

Our #ndcartistoftheweek is Phylicia Ghee, who has been a fixture as an artist for the New Day Campaign since we began in 2015. Our Resident Healing Artist in 2015, Phylicia has presented several extraordinarily powerful performances over the past several years, and will be a part of our activities again in 2018 in a yet-to-be-determined healing arts workshop as part of our programming for “Heroin & Healing,” an exhibition we are presenting with @kentcountyarts .
