This Is My Brave

October 5, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This is my brave

Floris UMC/Restoration is partnering with This is My Brave, Inc. (TIMB) to create an impactful and beautiful event.

TIMB is a mental health storytelling organization. They work to end the stigma of mental illness and addiction by sharing stories of hope and recovery. TIMB does this through live stage events where cast members express themselves creatively through personal essays, spoken-word poetry, original song, stand-up comedy and dance. They empower individuals to put names and faces to true stories of recovery from mental illness and addiction. They hope to inspire others to speak openly about their experiences.

When stories are shared, everyone – the storyteller and the audience – feels less alone and more hopeful about the future.

This October, experience impactful performances as adults share their mental health recovery story through song, dance and spoken word. After the storytelling, stay for a panel discussion and additional mental health resources.

*Due to some adult content and occasional strong language, parental guidance is advised for children under 13. Childcare is provided onsite if needed. 

Please be advised that some topics covered during the event may be triggering for some attendees. We have vetted stories for safe reporting to the best of our abilities. Topics include, but are not limited to, substance use, combat veteran experience, suicide, depression and anxiety.
