Next to Normal
"Next to Normal"/ Minnesota Medical Foundation
In May 2011, the Isora Foundation partnered with the Minnesota Medical Foundation to sponsor a "mental heath awareness reception" at the Ordway Theater in St. Paul, MN. The event took place before the performance of the Broadway Musical "Next To Normal" which deals with a family's struggle with bipolar disorder.
The event brought community members together to increase public awareness of innovative neuroscience research efforts and new treatment interventions for those suffering from mental illness.
At the reception, Dr. Charles Schulz, head of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota, interviews writer, Andrew Gadtke, about his experience with mental illness. www.ordway.org/blog/?id=124
