laugh until you cry

During Mental Health Awareness Month, comedian Skylar Schock hosted an evening of stand-up comedy and a follow up discussion with mental health expert Dr. Michelle Paul. The result was a one of a kind night of comedy that raised awareness and provided resources for the 1 in 5 Americans who are affected by mental health issues.


Along the way, we discovered something special:


When comics unpacked their process for writing specific jokes, it allowed for a more in depth conversation about issues surrounding mental health, stigmas, and lack of resources.


By involving the audience in the conversation, the show created not only something unique to most comedy shows, it fostered in person community and connections and helped bring tangible resources to individuals who may have never felt comfortable asking for help before.
