Out of Stigma’s Shadow:
Stories about mental health, mental illness, and the mysteries inside our heads.
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
The Stoop Storytelling Series in partnership with Jewish Community Services, Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore, Catholic Charities, MedStar Health, Baltimore Jewish Council, Maryland Faith Health Network, and NAMI Metro Baltimore will present “Out of Stigma’s Shadow: Stories about mental health, mental illness, and the mysteries inside our heads” on Tuesday, May 21st at the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.
For the show, we’re seeking 7 storytellers to share a 7-minute true, personal tale about their experiences with mental health (e.g. depression, suicide, bipolar disorder, substance use, trauma, anxiety, etc.) — the challenges, the surprises, the struggles, and the triumphs.
Stories can be from anyone who has experienced, or been impacted by, mental illness. The stories can be funny, sad, serious — as long as they’re true.
Got a tale to share? Submit it here by March 29 Submissions will be reviewed and selected storytellers will receive in-person story coaching from The Stoop producers.
Tuesday May 21st 7:00 pm
