Paul Dalio’s new film about the bipolar disorder has been hailed a breakthrough by mental health organisations.

“Touched With Fire”, in which Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby portray manic depressives on the run from a hospital, has been picked up by officials at several foundations and charities, reported Contactmusic.

Dalio, who spent five years in and out of psychiatric hospitals until he overcame his struggles with manic
depression, is thrilled his latest movie has been so well received.

“It’s been astounding. A series of organisations got behind us and wanted to use the film and go around the country and have screenings, like NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
