7:00:00 PM - Ross Szabo - Behind Happy Faces - Wisdom for Wellness Series: When Ross was a freshman in college everything seemed fine on the surface and no one could have imagined how many emotions he was suppressing. Diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 16, he was hospitalized for attempting to take his own life during his senior year of high school. Ross teaches students about the complexities of mental health issues and empowers them to seek help or help their friends seek help. Most mental health challenges are highly treatable, but too often remain hidden in silence, preventing people from achieving the recovery they are capable of. The program focuses on how students can achieve positive mental health by learning about their coping mechanisms. He does this with tasteful humor and insights to help participants understand common mental health conditions and covers warning signs that students can look for in their friends and peers.
