Down But Not Out – what does this mean to you? What would it mean to a professional in the field of mental health? How about for a person with depression? On Saturday, June 18th, we will meet some individuals who are doing incredible work in their respective walks of life. You will see a broad range of perspectives and approaches to diagnosing and treating mental illnesses.

We invite you to come and engage in the dialogue with us. For more information about our guest presenters, visit Virtual Ability's website.
