The Heart and Mind Connection (c) is an organization built by those with lived experience in mental illness and substance use disorders and for those who are struggling, their families and their communities that desire to bring support, education and change to the conversations around mental health. We provide classes and trainings across the Midwest, sponsor and participate in many events each year and deliver supportive and educational programming around the state.
Founded by a veteran/stand-up comedian and a physical therapist/Biology teacher, they bring their experiences with mental illness, substance use disorder and recovery to all they do.
We are always looking for opportunities to engage with communities in opening up conversations about what mental wellness is, how we can support those who struggle and how to end the stigma that is so pervasive around mental illness and suicide. And we do it in unique, fun ways that connect with all ages...join us!
