The Brainpower Chronicles: Mental Health Stories

Nobyembre 2022

7:00 - 9:00PM

Kirkland Performance Center

Ang pagkukuwento ay isang mahalagang bahagi ng kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan mula pa noong bago ang nakasulat na salita.

Ang pagkukuwento ay isang mahalagang bahagi ng kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan mula pa noong bago ang nakasulat na salita. Mula sa mga podcast hanggang sa mga pag-uusap sa TED, ang pagkukuwento ay nagkaroon ng mga bagong anyo habang umuunlad ang teknolohiya, ngunit ang presensya nito ay pare-pareho. Likas sa tao na ibahagi ang aming mga kwento ng saya, sakit, tagumpay, at pagkawala sa isa't isa. Ang mga nakabahaging karanasan na ito, ang pagkilos ng pagbabahagi ng mga karanasang iyon, ay malalim na nag-uugnay sa atin sa iba sa mundo.

Inilunsad ng NAMI Washington ang The Brainpower Chronicles: Mental Health Stories upang pagsama-samahin ang mga tao sa kanilang mga karanasan sa sakit sa isip at paggaling. Ang mga krisis sa kalusugang pangkaisipan ay maaaring ilan sa mga pinakanakahiwalay na kaganapang pangkalusugan na maaaring maranasan ng isang tao sa buhay na ito, na may epektong ripple na nakakaapekto sa buong pamilya. Ang Brainpower Chronicles ay ang aming paraan ng paglikha ng komunidad at pagsira sa stigma na nagpapatahimik sa mga tao, habang nangangalap ng pondo para sa kritikal na misyon ng NAMI Washington upang mapabuti ang kalidad ng buhay ng lahat ng taong apektado ng sakit sa isip.

Ang pagtatanghal noong 2022 ay gaganapin LIVE sa Kirkland Performance Center para sa 250 tao, at magiging LIVE STREAMED din. Ang teatro ay maaaring upuan ng higit sa 400, kami ay nagbebenta lamang ng 250 na mga tiket para sa LIVE na pagtatanghal upang matiyak namin ang pinakaligtas na kapaligiran para sa aming mga bisita. Kung nais mong bumili ng tiket para dumalo nang personal, mangyaring malaman ang sumusunod:

    1. Katibayan ng pagbabakuna kinakailangan sa pinto sa gabi ng pagganap

    2. Dapat magsuot ng face mask para sa buong performance

    3. Uupuan, ayon sa grupo, upang ikaw at ang iyong mga bisita ay manatiling magkasama, ngunit din

    maging socially distanced mula sa iba.

Tandaan, LIVE STREAMING din natin ang performance, pareho lang ang halaga ng ticket.

Lakas. pag-asa. kahinaan. Dahil totoo ang pagbawi, at pag-uusapan natin ito sa totoong mga termino. Tatawa ka, iiyak ka...at iiwan mo ang The Brainpower Chronicles na alam mong HINDI KA NAG-IISA!

The 2023 performance is being held LIVE at the Kirkland Performance Center for 400 people. Face masks are strongly encouraged.

Strength. Hope. Vulnerability. Because recovery is real, and we're going to talk about it in the realest terms.

You'll laugh, you'll cry...and you'll leave The Brainpower Chronicles knowing YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
