Closing Programs and Reception for “More than Meets the Eye” Exhibition
Date: Saturday, March 14, 2020
Time: 4:30 – 6 p.m.


The Southern Vermont Arts Center is hosting closing program and a reception for the “More than Meets the Eye” exhibition. 

John T. Broderick, Jr., Senior Director, External Affairs at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and former Chief Justice, N.H. Supreme Court, will present his talk titled “Changing the Culture Around Mental Illness: It’s Way Past Time.” Through Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s R.E.A.C.T. Mental Health Awareness Campaign which provides individuals throughout New Hampshire and Vermont with tips about how to deal with signs of emotional suffering and with resources for support and help, Broderick has been reaching out to students, educators, parents, businesses and communities, to change the conversation on mental health and to help reduce stigma. Broderick believes that “we have the ability to change the culture and the way mental health is viewed.” 

Following the presentation, please stay with us for a discussion about mental health issues in our community and how to address them. We will be joined by local mental health professionals specializing in various arenas, who will share information about their current work and trends they see within the mental health field. There will be an open discussion in which audience members can ask the panelists questions about the presentation, how to address the issues we see in our community, and how to get involved to help fight the stigma that is attached to mental illness in our society. 

Broderick’s presentation and the subsequent panel discussion will take place in Yester House Gallery II, which holds the “I Am More” exhibition by The Yellow Tulip Project.

Light refreshments will be served.
