Stories About Mental Health & Wellness

Please join co-producers, Cheryl Cofield and Pearl Alexander, for the third annual Transformative Narratives Storytelling Crawl from October 26-29, 2020. During this immersive six-event series, renowned, nationally touring storytellers Milbre BurchSonny Kelly, and Lani Peterson will offer virtual, one-person performances and tantalizing story-related workshops. In addition, a host of powerful international, national, local, and Georgia Tech storytellers will take center “stage” to help audiences enhance self-awareness, increase cultural competence, and connect through the sharing of diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives.

All events are virtual, free, and open to faculty, staff, students, and invited guests from around the globe. 

Gather with a community of empathetic listeners to hear stories about mental health, including a variety from the Institute's Transformative Narratives’ “Mental Health Stories” collection (3-to-7-minute stories anonymously submitted by faculty, staff and students who consented to having their stories shared at Tech). These are personal narratives of emotional struggle, hope and healing. They are deeply personal, often poignant, and may provoke varying emotions in the listener. Please make an informed decision about engaging in this session.
