Speaking Our Minds (ASL interpretation provided)

What is it like to have mental illness on campus? A panel of students 
tell about their experiences battling depression, anxiety, self-injury, 
obsessive compulsive disorder, and dealing with family members having 
mental illness, all while struggling to stay in college and keep up with 
their classes.

Millions of students suffer from the affects of a mental illness, but 
the stigma surrounding these issues silences them. Students need to know 
that they aren't alone, and in fact there are people who understand and 
want to fight for a safer environment in which everyone feels heard. 
Please come listen as these young people reveal these experiences. "The 
first step toward change is awareness."

Panel sponsored by the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI UVM)
This event will be sign language interpreted.
