Contributors are encouraged to get as creative as they want in sharing their story, whether it's a monologue sharing an experience, a poem about what mental health means to you, a song or dance, and anything else you can come up with! Contributors will be notified after five minutes of sharing and then be encouraged to wrap-up their final thoughts. If you're not up for sharing during the evening, we gladly welcome you as a member of the audience - let's support one another. This is a space of non-judgment and inclusiveness as we aim to keep the conversation going surrounding mental health + illness.
