WARNING: Mental Health Disclaimer: Please be advised that content of the presentations may at times be difficult for audience members due to the nature of the topics. Our goal is to discuss different topics such as trauma, self-harm, anxiety, and depression in a space that allows for awareness, enhances understanding and empathy, and ultimately chips away at stigma. Mental health resources will be made available for each presentation and mental health professionals will be in attendance to assist those with resources.
March 10 @ 11:45 am
I am a pre-social work major. I am currently a part of Brookdale’s Cheer and Dance Team, I’m acting secretary of the Creative Writing Club, and I’m Vice President of the Psychology and Human Services Club. I have been able to maintain good academic standing since entering college. Despite all the things that, on the outside, appear to be going well, I struggle. I have been learning to cope with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for the past 15 years, and although I’ve made great progress, I still have a long way to go. Because of my experiences, stigma plagues me like it does so many others, and by sharing my story, I hope to educate, inspire, and open the space to discuss things that have been previously considered “hush, hush.”
Please join the Psychology and Human Services Club as we go past the surface and have a “Real Talk” about the challenges that follow trauma, and together, we can destigmatize the conversation.
