The Basilica of Saint Mary Mental Health Ministry is honored to present the Mental Health Author Series in partnership with Trinity Episcopal Church Mental Health Initiative and Excelsior Bay Books. The series will begin with author Mary Cregan Thursday, September 12 at The Basilica of Saint Mary.
Cregan will read from and discuss her new book, The Scar: A Personal History of Depression and Recovery, a graceful and penetrating memoir interweaving the author’s descent into depression with a medical and cultural history of the illness. Cregan will sign books following the presentation and copies will be available for purchase.
Janet Grove, the Mental Health Ministry coordinator at The Basilica said, “We are proud to launch this new series with our presenting partners to bring awareness to mental health to our community. We are working to remove the stigma of talking about mental health and bring openness to the conversation.”
