“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.
