Stand Up For Mental Health

Led by David Granirer, a counselor and stand-up comic, and author of The Happy Neurotic: How Fear and Angst Can Lead To Happiness and Success, Stand Up For Mental Health teaches stand up comedy to people with mental illness. Come laugh your head off at this show that looks at the lighter side of taking meds, seeing counselors, getting diagnosed and surviving the mental health system. Stand Up For Mental Health aims to reduce public stigma around mental illness and spread a message of hope and empowerment. People with mental illness are always being told what they can't do. In this show, they get to prove what they CAN do!
