Headstrong: Stories of Mental and Emotional Health  

New Deal Salon
November 10, 2017

At the Yarn, we believe in fighting stigmas through storytelling. The stigma around mental, emotional and behavioral health can range from challenging to paralyzing. Join us as we shed light on the sometimes-too-secret world of those whose lives are affected by mental health challenges. We will be hearing from experts in the field, family members of those suffering and people who they themselves are fighting every day to overcome the challenges stemming from within. Headstrong will be produced as part of the Clinton School of Public Service Speaker Series.
