NAMI WU’s poetic experience to bring students mental health

Washburn University

The National Alliance on Mental Illness at Washburn will be holding a meeting on Oct. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Kansas Room in Memorial Union.

The organization will have an open forum, Creativity for Mental Health for anyone and everyone to read personal poetry, their favorite poets, sing songs and enjoy a poetic event.

Mental Health isn’t just about illness, it is also about inspiration. Writing poetry, singing/song writing is a cathartic way to cope with experiences of anxiety, depression and unhappiness, but also all the good feelings that happen in ones life that become something more than just feelings inside our hearts and bodies.

Please come and join us for a wonderful event. Refreshments will be available.
