Comedian and mental health advocate Bill Bernat speaking at Compass Health Gala on 9/28

Bill Bernat: Hi I’m Bill Bernat. You may have seen my TED talk
on how to connect with depressed friends. Possibly you’ve heard me
on The Moth Radio Hour. I’m excited to announce
a speaking event that’s gonna be super fun and support
an amazing cause. On Saturday September 28, I’ll be the keynote speaker for
Compass Health’s Building Communities
of Hope Gala at the Tulalip Resort Casino. The people who talked to me
in an easygoing fun way when I was struggling
with depression and addiction are the ones
who made me feel like I belonged and I could have a good life. So I feel privileged
that I was asked to share my story with you, live, in support of two of Compass
Health’s most transformational youth programs. Camp Outside the Box
and Camp Mariposa. Which helped kids navigate
personal and family mental health and drug
addiction challenges. Mental health challenges can
be scary and lonely so it’s extremely important
to connect these kids with the resources they need
to thrive and we can do that with your help. I hope you’ll join me at
the Building Communities of Hope Gala on September 28,
at the Tulalip Resort Casino. You can learn more and buy
tickets on Compass Health’s website
