We Are Mental Wellness – A Virtual Benefit

Help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness and support your community. Join us for a virtual fundraising event on Wednesday, October 28 at 12 noon. The cost is just $10 per person. Proceeds benefit Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley Miracle Clubhouse.

Miracle Clubhouse is a community for growth, hope and opportunity for people recovering from mental illness. The program is offered free-of-charge to anyone with a mental illness diagnosis.

The virtual event will feature internationally recognized speaker, Andrea Paquette, founder and president of the Stigma-Free Society. Paquette initially created the Bipolar Babe Project in 2009, which offered people a place to connect and find valuable mental health information. In a time when mental health was rarely discussed, the Bipolar Babe Project evolved into the charity she leads today.

Paquette shares her personal story of struggle and triumph since her bipolar disorder diagnosis in 2005. She is an award-winning mental health activist, educator, facilitator, speaker and published author. Her first published work in 2012 entailed a contribution to a mental health anthology called, “Hidden Lives,” and she is currently writing her own memoir about her mental health journey.
