About the Event
Let's talk about our mental and emotional health! Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum and Companis initiate a series of community conversations to facilitate dialogue on mental health and emotional well being.
Through these community conversations, Folio aims to connect people and provide a platform for discussions around mental and emotional wellbeing and the ongoing challenges of the stigma surrounding it while exploring recovery and community healing. Each conversation will feature a guest sharing their lived experience and a conversation with the audience. These community conversations are free and open to all.
Our guest in January is Judith Skillman, award winning poet, survivor and co-editor of the anthology When Home Is Not Safe: Writings on Domestic Verbal, Emotional and Physical Abuse, a collection of poems, memoirs, and creative nonfiction pieces collected that tell of real incidents of abuse, as well as of those who left destructive and unsalvageable relationships.
Even if you haven't been hurt by domestic violence, someone you know has and wishes they could tell you about it. Perhaps you are a therapist, teacher, academic, or social worker who wants to help those who are suffering. Or maybe you are in an abusive relationship and need to know that you are not alone.
This program is presented in partnership with Companis.
Companis works to make our community healthier, safer, and more just by fostering skilled volunteer service. We build relationships and bridge the gap so that nonprofits can succeed in delivering vital services with the help of a Companis worker.
