About the Program

Hiding in Plain Sight: Youth Mental Illness features first-person accounts from more than 20 young people, ranging in age from 11 to 27, who live with mental health conditions, as well as parents, teachers, friends, healthcare providers in their lives, and independent mental health experts.

The Crisis Text Line (text HELLO to 741741), or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) are national services that are free and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. www.wellbeings.org

Thursday, October 20, 6:00 pm

Join us virtually to screen HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: YOUTH MENTAL ILLNESS. Following the screening, we will have a panel discussion with local professionals and leaders in the industry to discuss potential warning signs, reducing stigma, how and when to seek help, and where that help exists. We will also offer three breakout sessions for a more intimate gathering to ask and answer additional questions and concerns.
