Behind Happy Faces: Taking Charge of Your Mental Health

Book review & Q & A with author, Ross Szabo, Youth Outreach Director, National Mental Health Awareness Campaign

Monday, February 9, 2009 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

The truth is that mental health is hard to talk about. Afraid of being judged, or worried that no one will understand, we often put on a happy face and try to act like everything is OK ... even when it isn't. "Behind Happy Faces" takes on the most common emotional concerns expressed by over half a million young adults and offers hope and encouragement to start living the life we want, and deserve! Whether you are interested in gaining a better understanding of mental health issues, going through something yourself, or are interested in helping someone you care about, you will find this book eye-opening -- a must read for youth and adults alike. Everyone is welcome! http://www.nostigma.org/; Ross speaks with young adults at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pn1GwgtPDfc
