Let’s Talk About Mental Illness May 31

Rio Salado is hosting a webinar called Let’s Talk About Mental Illness to give students, employees and other members of our community an opportunity to have a meaningful conversation about mental illness topics.

Many people find it difficult to talk openly about mental illness because of long-standing stigmas. This webinar provides a safe space to discuss this topic with guest speaker Kate Mohler, who is living with a bipolar disorder, and is very familiar with and interested in neurodiversity, which refers to variations in moods and personalities that make each of us unique. 

Kate serves as secretary for Ability Maricopa and as English faculty for Mesa Community College. Learn more about her story and the latest details about the webinar by visiting this web page.

Join us for an interactive discussion with Kate to learn the terms, concepts, some of the experiences people have living with mental illness and more.

Let’s Talk About Mental Illness
Date: Tuesday, May 31, 2022
Time: 12-1 p.m.
