We will take a moment to pause from our busy lives to remember those who live life with a mental illness and those who have lost their lives due to a mental illness.
Our guest speaker is Jacqui Platt-Hores, a cast member from This Is My Brave, Wheeling. Jacqui will speak about living with anxiety and depression. She is a wife, mother and stepmother and has discovered that the more she opens up about living with her challenges, the more she is able to manage them and help others as well. An administrative professional at Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center, Jacqui is a resident of Wheeling.
