TONIGHT! Living with Mental Ill-Ability Speaker’s Event

Three young adults – two of which are Kaleidoscope’s own facilitators! – will share their stories about living with mental illness or mental ill-ability. As part of the Mental Health Network anti-stigma campaign, this event is an opportunity for the UBC community to learn about living with major depression disorder, bipolar type 1 and bipolar type 2. We will also have an open mic for students, staff and faculty in the audience to share their stories and ideas about mental health.

Date: Monday, January 28th, 2013
Time: 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location: Irving K. Baber Learning Centre – Room 182
Admission: $2
Refreshments will be provided!

ILL-A•bil•i•ty: \ˈil-ə-bi-lə-tē\ n.

The opposite of disability: adaptation of power, strength, and creativity. Anything one puts their mind to, will be done. Creating advantages from disadvantages: A physical or mental “handicap” that one adapted themselves to, to pursue living a full, normal life.
– Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli
