Monday, November 18, 2019, 05:30pm - 07:00pm

A book launch and reading will be presented by the Hive Mutual Support Network for its first book, Much Madness: A Survivor’s Guide to Extreme States and Self-Advocacy for Young Adults, a collection of personal stories from eight individuals who experienced psychosis or other extreme states as adolescents or young adults. Contributors shared what helped them navigate their extreme states, as well as what supports were unhelpful or harmful. Contributors found meaning through various channels: poetry, film making, activism, academia, and friendship. Much Madness also contains a list of resources that can be helpful to young people experiencing psychosis or extreme states.

The event will feature contributors reading from their essays, Q&A with editors Kaz DeWolfe and Calvin Moen, and representatives from Hilltop Recovery Residence, Youth Services, and Spark Teacher Education Institute talking about their work

Light refreshments will be served.
