Many people either know someone with or are they themselves dealing with some form of mental illness. Depression, addiction, and or personality/mood disorders etc are more prevelant in the world and yet such a stigma revolves around the topic. Let's together attempt to dismantle this stigma by normalizing the discussion of mental health.
This is a semi annual event since 2017. A $2-5 donation is requested to continue the event.
NO ONE TURNED AWAY FOR LACK OF FUNDS!
To create a safe space for expression of mental illness from expression, struggles, to coping skills and more.
Discussion of suicide, depression, mental health, and abuse and/or assault may occur.
