Representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness will speak openly about their own experiences with mental illness, with an opportunity for dialogue, questions, and resources.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Hear two representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness talk openly about their journeys from first experiencing symptoms to diagnosis to recovery and beyond.

This presentation will provide:

  • An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly misunderstood topic.
  • A chance to ask presenters questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions.
  • The understanding that people with mental health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams, and goals.
  • Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental health community.
  • In partnership with NAMI New Orleans. Sponsored by the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library.

About the library

Located in the Bywater neighborhood, the Alvar Library was built by the WPA in 1940 and is a fine example of the Art Deco architectural style of that period. Weekly, we offer computer tutoring, storytime, and crafts. Collection highlights include locally-made comics and zines.
