Join us for an evening of laughs! Featuring comedians from the Living Room at Call for Help and emceed by David Granirer. Located in the Auditorium, doors open at 6:30 pm and the event kicks off at 7 pm.

Stand Up For Mental Health is a program that teaches stand up comedy to people with mental health issues as a way of building self-esteem and fighting public stigma. People with mental health issues are always being told what they can’t do. In this show, you’ll see what they CAN do! These comedians have mastered a 12-week comedy course. They have learned how to turn their challenges with mental health symptoms into great comedy. This evening will make you laugh, deepen your understanding, and help you fight the stigma surrounding mental illness.

While this is a free show, donations at the door are appreciated. Please notify @ bbaker@callforhelpinc.org if an accommodation is required to attend the performance.
