With humor and honesty, professional storytellers break the taboo and speak openly about life with a mental illness. Story District performers explore what it's like to manage panic attacks, discover that you have a mental illness, spend time in psychiatric hospital care, be married to someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder, and deal with a sibling with multiple diagnoses while teaching others in same situation about how to manage. Q&A will follow performance, including mental health resources at Georgetown.
RSVP requested, but not required. Seating opens at 6:30pm. Light refreshments will be served.
Presented as part of the Bioethics Research Showcase, a program of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown. This event is co-sponsored by the Doyle Engaging Difference Program and the Engelhard Project for Connecting Life & Learning.
