Let Me Tell You What It's Really Like

Abiding Presence will kick off Mental Health Awareness Month with a performance of “Let Me Tell You What It’s Really Like: A conversation about living with mental illness in general and bipolar disorder in particular.” What's it like to live with bipolar disorder, a specific form of mental illness? What's it like for family, friends and coworkers of the person with that disorder? Join us for a powerful 30-minute performance, followed by a Q&A with the actors. The conversation will take place in the sanctuary. There will be no Abiding Table this Sunday.

AP's Mental Health Team hopes this Mental Health Month event will help lessen the stigma of mental illness, lead to greater understanding for everyone who deals with it, and create a sense of compassion and support for those dealing with mental health issues in our community.

If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Heidi. We hope to see you there!
