Memoir and Mental Health
Whether you’ve been officially diagnosed with a mental illness or have lived with anxiety or depression, writing about our emotions and mental health can be a great tool for coping. In this 6-session class, we will explore areas of our lives that have been affected by challenging emotions and psychological states. We will respond to prompts in class geared to share our struggles as well as our strengths and victories. Excerpts of published mental health memoir, poetry, and prose will be distributed for discussion as well as articles and passages on healing and wellness. Students can choose to write at home and submit to the class for critique and/or feedback.
