The Appalachian Regional Library received a Library Services and Technology Act grant for a project called “Cracked, Not Broken: Maintaining and Managing Mental Health”. The library believes that friendly and collaborative civic engagement around this topic is possible hence the grant has been named the “Good Neighbor Project”.
This series of programs will engage the community in reading a common book, in discussion, and in programming related to mental health issues. The title of the book that we are featuring is “Cracked, Not Broken” by Kevin Hines.
Kevin attempted suicide by jumping off of the Golden Gate Bridge and survived; he is now a sought out speaker who tells his story in the context of managing his mental health each day as he lives with bipolar disorder.
Pick up a book at the Watauga County Public Library.
Kevin will be coming to Boone United Methodist Church on Monday, April 16 at 6:30 pm. See the logo for other dates in the region.
