I’m thrilled to once again emcee the Barbara Schneider Foundation annual gala. The organization advocates in the area of mental health crisis awareness…training police officers, corrections officials, 911 operators, emergency responders, and social workers about how to identify whether someone in a possible criminal altercation is truly suspect or actually off-balance due to mental illness.
The mission is to make people suffering with mental illness safer to themselves and others and to make a stronger community. So what more fitting of a place to hold tonight’s gala than at the Downtown Minneapolis Public Library. Along with supporters and officers from all over the state you can meet authors sharing stories of humor, mystery, and triumph. BSF will premiere Getting it Right”, a short behind-the-scenes documentary of a first-responder call to someone in mental health crisis.
Join us…for fun, food, and to share your story for continued ”Pages of Possibilities”.
