Mental Health Presentation - SNAP! My Teenage Life: Breaking Down and Finding Hope Comment from henderso on 02/20/13
I had the pleasure of seeing Regina do this performance when she did it in one of our galleries. It is a really wonderful piece of work, capturing what it felt like (and may feel like now for many of our students) to face mental health challenges while still passing through adolescence into early adulthood. I hope people will strongly encourage students to attend--and I hope many faculty and staff will find the time. In addition to its educative value, it is simply wonderful art--we are very fortunate to have someone of Regi's gifts, stature, and skill as a teacher on our faculty.
