Nothing to Hide Program Set to Raise Awareness on Mental Illness

Published on Tue, September 30, 2008

On Wednesday, October 8, Marywood University's Counseling and Student Development Center and Peers On Wellness (P.O.W.) will present the 7th Annual Nothing to Hide program to observe National Mental Awareness Month. Undergraduate and graduate students will present information to increase awareness of mental illness and erase its stigma on college students. Nothing to Hide's keynote speaker, Dick Conaboy, Vice President of Clear Brook Manor and a Marywood University graduate, will share his personal story of addiction and depression.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at The Memorial Commons on the campus of Marywood University. (If inclement weather occurs, the event will take place inside the Health and Physical Education Center.) The program will run from 4-6 p.m., and free food and refreshments will be provided.
