Perfect Chaos: A Reading & Discussion

Thank you for making this event a success! Over 40 community members joined us for a personal productive conversation at Folio. Together, we can eliminate the stigma that surrounds mental illness.

Mental illness is, for many of us, a familiar stranger. It has touched our lives and yet we struggle to understand it.

The most valuable asset in our community is a place that provides hope, opportunity and recovery for people who grapple with serious mental illness. Transitional Resources is that place for between 200 and 240 vulnerable individuals in Seattle. And for friends, family and loved ones, it’s a critical community of support.

At a time when we find our social support networks at risk, it’s ever more important to have candid conversations about mental illness and to support an organization like Transitional Resources.

Please join us for a special fundraising event, a reading by Cinda and Linea Johnson, authors of Perfect Chaos: A Daughter’s Journey to Survive Bipolar, a Mother’s Struggle to Save Her. Cinda and Linea will lead an intimate conversation, drawing from the experience chronicled in their book, to offer a glimpse into the disorienting turmoil that accompanies the onset of bipolar disorder. There will be a Q&A with the authors, followed by an invitation to support Transitional Resources.
