LGBTQ and Mental Illness: Sharing Our Story on May 15

WHAT: LGBTQ and Mental Illness: Sharing Our Story
WHEN: Friday, May 15, 6-8 p.m.
WHERE: New Haven Pride Center, 84 Orange St., New Haven, CT

LGBTQ and Mental Illness: Sharing Our Story will be an event where 4 people who identify as LGBTQ and having a mental illness will talk about their personal perspectives. They will share their challenges of having to come out being both gay and having a mental illness and will talk about which was more difficult to deal with. They will also speak about the hope they now have moving forward.

Following each 10 minute presentation, they will as a panel answer questions from the audience. Food will be served afterwards. The hope is that people living in silence with mental illness will feel more encourage to share their story and get treatment it needed, as well as to break the stigma that often exists having a mental illness.

Come to the Pride Center to hear personal stories of the challenges and hopes of those who are in recovery from mental Illness and identify as LGBTQ.

For more info or to RSVP, please contact: Ted Pappas at 203-974-7265 or Ted.pappas@yale.edu. You can also RSVP on our Facebook page.

Co-hosted by the New Haven Pride Center and the Connecticut Mental Health Center.

Mourning the loss of a friend

Members and friends of the New Haven Pride Center are remembering one of their own who passed far too soon. Michelle McCleary - who gifted us with her graphic & design talents, her dedication to the NHPC, her passion for justice, her love of life, and her friendship - passed away in her sleep on November 10. She leaves a huge hole in our family. We will miss you Michelle. Thank you for making us part of your life.
