Balkansky Community Room
Close to Home” is a domestic issues series that explores a range of topics that have the potential to impact the daily lives of people within our community. “It’s OK To Not Be OK,” being presented on Monday, October 28 at 69 PM in MPL’s Balkansky Community Room, is the culmination of one person’s story of a battle with mental health challenges. Jeff—who long ago set fire to an abandoned structure with the intention of never leaving–now speaks to groups about the importance of destigmatizing mental health issues and talking about suicide, most especially in our rural communities, where stress and anxiety are at all-time highs in the farming industry. “It’s OK” addresses how a bad day doesn’t make a bad life. Jeff also discusses how to recognize signs of depression in others and how to find and use coping methods. Jeff has been seen on local news programs southern Wisconsin, as well as on HBOs “Vice News.” You won't want to miss this incredible program.
