Beyond Stigma - SOLD OUT

  • Centre for Stories 100 Aberdeen Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

In honour of R U OK? Day, we bring you Beyond Stigma, a storytelling evening funded by Ruah Community Services.

Join three storytellers as they share their personal stories that explore mental illness. This event is intended to provide our storytellers the chance to articulate difficult – and often taboo – topics with an open-minded audience.

The evening will feature stories from Kate Purcell, Angel Lee and Michele Woods.

This event will act as a safe space for guests to ask questions and seek knowledge about mental health. We aim to give our audience the confidence to help others experiencing mental illness, to better understand mental health issues in Australia, and to portray people who have experienced, or continue to experience, mental illness in a positive and inclusive manner.

This event would not be possible without the kind support of Ruah Community Services. Ruah is a community organisation that provides services in housing and homelessness, mental health and domestic violence.

Nibbles and refreshments will be provided.
