The School District of Elmbrook in collaboration with Waukesha County Health and Human Services, NAMI Waukesha, and NAMI Greater Milwaukee is excited to host a production of Pieces: in My Own Voice.
Pieces: In My Own Voice is a production designed for youth and their families by NAMI Greater Milwaukee and a troupe of actors that uses a scripted performance to address stigma related to mental illness. Through individual stories, stigmatizing attitudes about mental illness are deconstructed, allowing the audience a look beyond the barriers of preconceived notions. Through the Waukesha County Youth Crisis grant, we are able to offer this half-hour production free of charge for youth and adults alike.
A talkback session will follow the production, allowing the audience to ask questions of individuals living with mental health conditions and mental health professionals. Evidence has shown the production to reduce stigmas among those in attendance, and is made possible in part by the Youth Crisis Grant through Waukesha County Health and Human Services, and hosted by The School District of Elmbrook.
