Speaking Points

Adversity to Opportunity

Amanda shares how psychiatric hospital during college gave her the strength to stand up for her beliefs and challenge traditional perceptions and practices of wellness. Let's think outside the box of traditional mental health narratives: from illness to identity.

  • How do we see power in our vulnerabilities?
  • How do translate adversity into opportunity?

Empathy has impact

Amanda weaves her personal story, documentary films, comic book resources, and research into a compelling and creative presentation that will challenge that status quo of how we think about mental health in the individually and in our communities.
