    What's the big deal about divorce? Why should we read and talk about it when everyone around us seems to be fine with it?

About The Event

What is going on with mental health? Why are so many young people attending the best schools in the country "dying of despair"?

Suicides are on the rise and so are depression and anxiety. Whether you are a student, a professor, or a parent, there is a zero chance that you do not know someone who will directly benefit from attending this talk, or benefit from you attending it.

Join us to learn more about the causes of our society's distress and about what we can and should do to help people regain their sanity and their joy.
