What People With Mental Illness Want You to Know – A Mental Illness Awareness Week event

A panel of presenters will share from their personal perspective what it’s like to live with a mental health condition, what recovery looks like to them and what they want the public to know. Please note this presentation will be recorded.


Unawareness of illness is typically a symptom rather than a coping strategy. Dr. Amador advises to address mental health symptoms and other problem areas with a tool he calls L.E.A.P. His scientific studies have proven the effectiveness of this method. In this workshop you will learn more productive ways to communicate with your loved one. You can learn more at:
