Open Minds Social Justice Speaker Series@FPC

In Our Own Voice:Living a Life With Mental Illness

March 24th@7:30pm

Open Minds Social Justice Speaker Series Brings Diverse and Inspiring Speakers to the South Shore!

First Parish Church, Unitarian Universalist, Duxbury, MA announces its Open Minds Social Justice Speaker Series.   Bringing thought-provoking information and timely ideas to the South Shore community, each evening of the series will include stimulating speakers and time for questions and discussion.

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. Hear first-hand accounts as presenters humanize this misunderstood topic. Gain a deeper understanding of how it’s possible—and common—to live well 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. 

When and where: First Parish Church, Unitarian Universalist, 842 Tremont Street (Rt. 3A) Duxbury.  Events begin at 7:30. They are free and everyone is welcome.  In case of bad weather, a notice will be posted at uudux.org.

“Making Room”

Sunday, March 26 th@10:30am

Led by Meghann Robern, M.Div

In periods of high anxiety and stress, it’s an automatic reaction for us to focus on ourselves and our immediate dependents. How can we embrace truly loving ourselves as a path into building the beloved community, even when times are hard?
