Sunday Spotlight for NEXT TO NORMAL

Catch Me I'm Falling: Our Local Support Systems

Sunday, June 2, 2019 11:30AM
Alexandra C. & John D. Nichols

In Next to Normal, a family fights to overcome trauma of the past that continues to haunt them, with the help of several doctors and experts. While the musical is a work of fiction, the mental health issues that it addresses are very real, and sometimes closer to our own lives than we think. At this morning’s interactive panel discussion event, we welcome representatives from local mental health service organizations to discuss how Next to Normal reflects issues in our own communities, and how help is sometimes just one step away.
