Lifetree Cafe’ – “Mental Illness: Breaking the Silence, Overcoming the Shame”
July 30, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
Lifetree Cafe’ – “Mental Illness: Breaking the Silence, Overcoming the Shame” on July 30th from 6:30-7:30PM at Zion United Methodist Church in York. The program, titled “Mental Illness: Breaking the Silence, Overcoming the Shame,” explores the isolation often experienced by those with mental illness—and by their loved ones. The program features a filmed interview with Amy Simpson, author of the book “Troubled Minds.” She grew up with a mother who was later diagnosed with schizophrenia. “My family needed help, and we didn’t know where to get it. My whole family felt alone,” says Simpson, who equates mental illness with other physical illnesses. “I should no more be ashamed of mental illness than I should be ashamed of a broken leg or asthma,” says Simpson. Lifetree Café is free and open to the public. All are welcome! Bring a friend! Light refreshments and conversation are provided. 717-843-5261
