Come laugh your head off at this show that looks at the lighter side of taking meds, seeing counselors, getting diagnosed and surviving the mental health system.
Featured in the Voice Award winning documentaryCracking Up, Stand Up For Mental Health aims to reduce public stigma around mental illness and spread a message of hope and empowerment. People with mental illness are always being told what they can’t do. In this show, they get to prove what they CAN do!
