As May comes to a close, I have been trying to come up with an event to raise awareness. I am grateful the idea came to me and someone suggested a great name.
I want to share “Our Stories Matter ” an afternoon event August 24th, Oakledge Park, Burlington Vermont.
Speakers will talk about their experiences with mental health and substance use disorder.
I am hoping to decrease stigma for people and those that love them.
I know sharing isn’t easy or even natural. It can bring awareness to the struggles people face, the burdens they carry that are too often shrouded in silence.
This event has been my focus this May, organizing, fund raising…generally thinking about it.
Now let us hope the weather cooperates.
