A conversation about perceptions, realities and what it's like to work and live with the stigma of mental illness.
Friday, March 7, 20148:00pm at the Bushnell
We are proud to present a distinguished panel for An Honest Look at Mental Illness later this week. The panelists will bring personal experience and professional expertise to this important topic.
Anxiety. Depression. Addiction. Stress. Psychological disorders from A to Z.
We are all touched by mental illness in one way or another, but we rarely seem ready to talk about it honestly. That's if we're talking about it at all. Too often, we discuss mental illness with language that is simplistic, generalizing, and even reckless, perpetuating stereotypes and misconceptions. We are left to struggle in silence, and navigate the complicated and challenging world of mental illness alone.
Join us for a brave and compassionate conversation about this difficult and important topic...with personal stories and professional insights about mental illness and the realities of our mental health infrastructure.
