Share Your Story

This Is My Brave, The Show, is coming to Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids on Saturday, April 22, at 7 p.m. in Ballantyne Auditorium.  The mission of This Is My Brave, a mental health nonprofit, is to end the stigma that continues to surround mental health issues through a live presentation of touching essays, poetry and original music from individuals living with, or loving someone with, a mental health issue.  The show is powerful, thought-provoking and compelling.  They are currently accepting submissions of individuals who want to share their story.  Submissions must be under five minutes.  Be creative, it’s YOUR story!  This is open to anyone in the community.  The submission deadline is February 17th.  For more information or to submit work, email brook@thisismybrave.org.
