Someday Melissa – Screening in Newport Beach, CA
The International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals of Orange County, California is holding a public screening of the documentary Someday Melissa. Melissa Arvin struggled with an eating disorder until her death at age 19. Throughout her life, even in the darkest moments of her addiction, Melissa’s creativity shined through. It was always hard for her to express her feelings verbally so she used film making, writing, drawing and acting as means of self-expression. A gifted writer from a young age, her journals were filled with powerful messages of hope along with words of sadness and pain. This is a moving documentary, Directed by Melissa Arvin’s mother.
We have mentioned Someday Melissa before on our blog, but now it will be screening in our own backyard of Newport Coast next month!
Someday Melissa Saturday, December 1st 2 pm – 4 pm Sage Hill School in Newport Coast Tickets can be purchased HERE.
The prolific growth of eating disorder behaviors continues to sore and it is vital that we strengthen our awareness and education around this issue.
