Response to this event:
“This was an amazing experience with a dynamic view of mental illness that can definitely bring awareness and compassion.”–Christine C.
“I am a nursing student at NMSU. It was very moving to hear their stories and have a ‘taste’ of what they go through on a daily basis. It made me think about how I would act if I had a neighbor with schizophrenia. All of the speakers were very brave to stand up there and share their stories. I commend them all for doing this. It was eye opening for me.”
“Beautiful to inspiring performance! These brave individuals sharing their personal experiences is humbling….”
“I had no idea how prevalent it (mental illness) was and I even think my brother may have a mental illness after listening to this presentation. I feel very appreciative of the presenters. They are very brave and have educated me greatly in such a short time.”
“I really enjoyed hearing the people share their stories and seeing a more personal side of mental illness, not just reading about it in a text book.”.
“Watching all the nodding heads in the audience meant we were seeing all sides and how many people it affects. Just great and amazing to see the numbers (of people) here.”
