This Month: If you, a family member, or friend live with a mental health condition, you’re not alone. Depression, anxiety, suicidal feelings…one in 5 adults experiences a mental health condition every year. One in 17 lives with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. And too often, these experiences stay private. Join us on March 24 th when our FPC Open Minds Speaker Series presents In Our Own Voice: Living with Mental Illness.

This talk is presented by a panel from the National Alliance for Mental Illness and is appropriate for family members, friends, professionals, lay audiences and people living with mental illness. March 24, 7:30 PM. Admission is free.
