a weekly discussion series conceived and moderated by Diana Barrett, Ph.D., and Jake H. Davis, Ph.D.

Join us as we take the conversation in a new direction. We will start with a meaningful topic and then turn inwards to explore the emotions that motivate speech and action. Sometimes we will take a break from talking altogether and really be quiet for a moment.

This week’s topic is SANITY, exploring the place of stigma, dignity, and acceptance in caring for people with mental illness.


Pre-registration is required. Limited to a maximum of 40 participants. Coffee and tea will be provided.
