Zona Abierta Things We Don’t Say

Date / Time

November 6, 2019

3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center and Disability Cultural Center

Join us with Sip of Hope leading a discussion about mental health stigma, its impact on individuals and communities, and its intersection with labor in Latinx communities. Learn practical skills for early recognition of mental health challenges that often go unaddressed due to the silence of stigma, building to a crisis stage. Through Peer-to-peer Proactive Prevention, we can disrupt the highest risk factors before the crisis stage. 

Let’s normalize the conversation and break down stigma while sipping on coffee from Sip of Hope!


When: Wednesday, November 6, 20189

A collaboration between Hope For The Day and Dark Matter Coffee, Sip of Hope is the world’s first coffee shop where 100% of the proceeds support proactive suicide prevention and mental health education. Sip of Hope is the perfect space for breaking the silence around suicide and raising the visibility of mental health resources in our community.
