GET FIT Facing Mental Illness Head On – On Stage!

By   |   September 29, 2015   |   Fitness

Did you know that one in 4 people face mental health issues, meaning nearly every family in America has been touched by this treatable but challenging issue? But the conversation on the subject still remains muted and the sufferers closeted.

Now The Depressed Cake Shop has brought This Is My Brave – The Show to New York City.

ΓÇïThis Is My Brave – The Show (TIMB) is raising the volume of conversation around mental health, one powerful story at a time. Lauded as a ground-breaking concept, which has received rave reviews and has been touted as “healing for humanity,” the show will kick off Mental Illness Awareness Week (Oct.5 to 11).

This is My Brave New York features 14 individuals whose first act of bravery was auditioning for a role in this very unique evening. The cast shares their true stories about living with, or loving someone with a mental illness through comedy, poetry, personal essays and original music. Slam poet Kamilah Holtz is featured in the production.

The show is playing Sunday, Oct. 4 at Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, NYC. Tickets are on sale now:
