Description

“What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversation.” – Glenn Close

On Wednesday, March 6th, District Hall will host inspireWELLNESS Café Night, a self-care, mental health & well-being focused gathering, as part of our “Changing Face of Innovation” Café Night series.

The event will be like no other. It will feature Me2/ ("me, too") Orchestra, the world’s only classical music organization created for individuals with mental illnesses and the people who support them (here is a NYTimes article about Me2/), along with an #Artbar hosted by Arts Connect International and workshops on meditation & reflection as well as how to deal with the mental health stigma.

Join us for a wonderful evening of music, food, and reflective activities. And don't forget to bring a friend because the more the merrier!
