Mental Illness Awareness Week
Re-engaging With Life, Creating A New You:
Turning Impossible to I’m Possible
Inspired by true stories, Josh Rivedal will discuss both the science and importance of storytelling in helping people re-engage with life in the wake of tragedy or loss. Josh will share his story on losing his father and grandfather to suicide, his own near-suicide attempt and how he found hope, healing and new life in the aftermath. He also will share several stories from his newest book The i’Mpossible Project of people living with mental illness and how they’ve learned to manage their conditions.
Josh is internationally recognized for his work related to suicide prevention, mental health awareness and diversity.
