This year, our Doctoral Interns also demonstrated their commitment by coordinating and arranging our Open House event that included diverse presentations such as showing the documentary film “A New State of Mind: Ending the Stigma of Mental Illness,” narrated by actress Glenn Close, and IMCES clients sharing their success stories. The event was attended by community leaders including educators, local business people, and representatives of local financial institution. Our outreach and awareness-raising activities included communication with County, State, and Federal officials.
Our Open House event included a number of powerful presentations by IMCES Doctoral Interns related to mental health and stigma. The list of presentations, with the aim of raising awareness in our community can be downloaded below:
