Hear from those who know and learn from their experience.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Mental Health: Mind Matters, join NAMI Central Texas for a presentation that will change attitudes, assumptions, and ideas about mental health conditions. This discussion will provide a personal perspective, as presenters with lived experience talk openly about what it's like to have a mental health condition and overcome it. By dispelling stereotypes and misconceptions, this event will provide a deeper understanding of conditions, treatments, and even an opportunity to create a mental health toolkit for guests to take home.
