Storycatchers: Voices of our Mental Health Community
Saturday, March 18, 2017


Free and open to the public

Join us for a special Storycatchers Live event at The History Museum at the Castle in partnership with Nami-Fox Valley for a night of community storytelling surrounding the topic of mental health. 

With the backdrop of the groundbreaking exhibit "Asylum: Out of the Shadows", which explores the history of our mental health system, we will give a microphone to members of our mental health community to hear what it means to be living, loving, or supporting someone with mental health conditions in the Fox Cities today. 

Do you or someone you love have a mental health condition? Do you work in the mental health field? We want your voice and experiences heard. If you are interested in telling your story please contact Storycatchers founder Tara Pohlkotte at tara@storycatcherscommunity.com. 

All stories must be YOUR story to tell, be true, and should be around the 5 minute mark. The rest is up to you! 

This event is open to the public and you do NOT need to tell a story to attend. We hope through both the telling and listening to our community stories that we will break down barriers, stigma and earn a greater understanding about mental health.
