No Really! We Want You To Laugh!

Monday, April 6 | Ellyn Bye Studio | 8 p.m. | FREE/Donations Accepted

PCS is proud to host Stand Up For Mental Health, a local mental health nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of individuals struggling with mental illness through finding humor in shared experiences and turning personal struggle into live, comic performance. Through their performances, they show mental illness in a whole new light breaking stigma and discrimination one joke at a time. The shows are inspirational, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny!

The Stand Up For Mental Health program has also performed at the Helium Comedy Club and Marylhurst University.

Stand Up For Mental Health is a constituent program of the Peer Wellness and Work Initiative, and supported in part by Sequoia Mental Health Services, Inc.
