September 30th, 2019 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch, Teens, Trustees

Join Rick Cornell, VP of Community Relations at the Mental Health Center of Greater Manchester, on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at 7pm in the Auditorium for a look at the history of mental health in Manchester. Part of the One-Book-One-Manchester series, this program will examine the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental disorders during the 1960’s and how it shaped the projects where Gloria Norris grew up. From the 1960’s to today, Cornell will touch on some of the most misunderstood disorders, and how, left untreated, they can cause tremendous damage to those that suffer from them and the people around them.  For more information, contact Sue at 624-6550 x3320
