Breaking the Silent Barrier
Stigma and myth are side effects that impact not only people living with mental illness, but those close to them. Sometimes funny, sometimes painful, but always seeking to better understand the complex nature of mental illness with compassion, Minds Interrupted: Stories of Lives Affected by Mental Illness brings out of the shadows and onto the stage, personal stories of empathy on Saturday, May 11 from 5:30 to 8:30pm at KiMo Theatre. Tickets to this 13-and-over event are $16. For more information, see breakingthesilencenm.org. (Clarke Condé)
