The Mind Matters: Building Stronger Communities Through Mental Health Acceptance
How do we make a better world—big and small—in the face of the immense neurodiversity we are only beginning to understand? According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1 in 5 US adults will experience a mental disorder every year. This high rate takes its toll: on family, friends, workplaces, and, most of all, on the people themselves—who must deal not only with their disabilities but with lack of understanding and acceptance.
In this talk, Katie Rose Guest Pryal, J.D., Ph.D., author of the bestselling book Life of the Mind Interrupted: Essays on Mental Health and Disability in Higher Education, applies her decade of research on mental health and organizations to guide your group toward a holistic understanding of mental health, community, accessibility, and wellness. In either a keynote or workshop format, customized to your organization's needs, Dr. Pryal brings inspirational guidance that executives, leaders, and all organizational members can use to set a tone of support and growth.
