Mental Health and Stigma

Join us in the Chapel this Thursday, October 27, 6:30 p.m. at Living Well Community as we welcome Carey Menefee, Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and mental health professional. She will share her story of mental illness and recovery. Carey writes: "One in four people are affected by mental health issues. I am a successful wife, mother, business woman and member of Church Street. I also am affected by a mental illness. My brain chemistry started to shift at age eleven. I have had three suicide attempts, six hospitalizations and numerous experiences of not knowing where to turn. I am now a mental health professional who speaks about 'stigma.' All 'stigma' means is looking at people who are affected with a mental illness as less than you. Having conversations about what we may not want to talk about is the very thing that helps stomp out stigma."

We hope you'll join us on October 27 for this time of honest conversation, education, and hope.
