The silent epidemic of depression affects millions of people and takes dozens of lives every day, and yet our culture grapples with the stigma against open discussion of mental illness. Editor Amy Ferris has collected stories written by so many talented authors to illuminate the truth behind that stigma and offer compassion, solidarity, and hope for all those who have struggled with depression and other mental illnesses.

 

WWAMH is very excited to sponsor this show. Part of the agency’s mission is to promote the awareness and importance of mental wellbeing in the community. One way to do that is to increase the dialogue about mental illness, which will hopefully lessen the stigma.  Using the authors’ voices to educate the public on the complexity of mental illness will in turn show why agencies like WWAMH are essential in the community.

Proceeds raised at this event will be used to financially support the various programs that we offer.
