Firsthand, Being Greene airs one week following Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW)

On the surface the Greenes are a fun-loving family. Dave is an Elvis Tribute Artist. Roxie is a writer. Quinn is an actor, and his little brother Kane is a beatboxer. But they are fighting an ongoing battle with mental illness. Dave is a hoarder. Kane suffers from suicidal thoughts. Roxie’s long history with depressive disorder has taken its toll. Quinn, the family caretaker, sacrifices his own ambitions to help the others.  
Quinn is ready to end the secrecy surrounding his family’s mental health.  But can he convince his family to join him?

Written and directed by executive producer, Jeff Newman, with Jocelyn Mitchell producer. Produced by Nüman Films, a Gemini Award winning company that produces  documentary and lifestyle programming. Find Quinn’s blog and information about the documentary at
