v_maxwell_rgb

Victoria Maxwell, one of North America's most sought-after speakers and educators on the "lived" experience of mental illness and recovery, will be speaking at Penn State Berks on Tuesday, October 12, 2010, at 8:30 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

After receiving her own diagnosis of bipolar and anxiety disorders, Maxwell became extremely proactive in her recovery. She combines her theatre background, personal experience, and professional knowledge as a mental health worker to share a unique and powerful perspective on dealing with mental illnesses, raising awareness and reducing stigma through her presentations.

Maxwell speaks to college campuses nationwide, helping students, faculty, staff, and community members to better understand the insider's experience of mental illness and recovery.

This presentation is part of the college's Arts and Lecture series. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
