PORT ANGELES — “My Name Is Faith,” the story of a girl and her adoptive family, will screen Thursday evening in Linkletter Hall at Olympic Medical Center, 939 Caroline St.

The documentary film was made by Tiffany Junker of Port Angeles, and has been shown at film festivals across North America.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, is presenting the film during its affiliate meeting at 7 p.m.

It introduces viewers to her daughter Faith, a child who suffered from abuse and neglect in a methamphetamine-infested household before she was adopted at
age 6.

Faith joined her adoptive family — Tiffany and Jason Junker and her younger brother, Jonah, also adopted — while suffering from reactive attachment disorder, or RAD, a condition derived from early childhood abuse. RAD renders a youngster unable to give or receive affection.

“My Name Is Faith” is about the journey the Junker family has made toward healing.

Everyone interested in mental health is encouraged to see the movie and, if so inclined, stay after for a discussion and refreshments.

For more information about the local NAMI chapter, phone 360-452-4235 or 360-461-3859.
