Stories of Mental Health
Wellstone/Barlow and Student Panel
- Monday, April 15
- 10 – 11:30 am
- East Campus, Lincoln Mall
- FREE and open to the public
Dave Wellstone (son of the late Senator Paul Wellstone) and Ken Barlow (KSTP meteorologist), along with a panel of
current and former Century College students, will be speaking about their experiences with mental illness.
Mr. Barlow has been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, and Mr. Wellstone was diagnosed with PTSD and depression
following the death of his mother, father, and sister in a plane crash. They recently formed the Wellstone/Barlow
Mental Health Initiative to educate the public about mental illness and reduce the stigma that is so often
associated with it.
Mr. Wellstone and Mr. Barlow will speak about their mental health diagnoses and the impact these challenges
have had on their lives. Century College students will also be speaking about their own mental health concerns,
- eating disorders
- alcohol and drug addiction
- schizoaffective disorder
This event is sponsored by the Mental Health Committee at Century College, and this session is eligible for a passport stamp.
