Penn State Shenango’s eighth annual Stamp Out Stigma mental health awareness event is addressing anxiety and depression during a program to be held at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13. The event is designed to bring important information, awareness, and personal stories about the importance of caring for one’s mental health to the forefront of our community.
This year’s Stamp Out Stigma keynote speaker is William Doan, professor of theater in the College of Arts and Architecture on the University Park campus of Penn State. Doan is a former artist-in-residence for the Penn State College of Nursing and was named the Penn State Laureate for 2019-20. He is the creator of "The Anxiety Project," which is a combination of more than 300 of his own drawings and live performance in which she shares personal anecdotes about living with anxiety and depression along with research-based information on mental health.
