A Walk Through Depression

Real men, real stories

This discussion is free and open to the public 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, at Holy Cross Parish, 10651 County Road 8, Kimball. 

Depression is a common and damaging health condition impacting more than 15 million Americans each year, and remains misunderstood and often in the shadows of discussions. When ignored, depression hurts not only the individual suffering, but their family, friends and community.

Holy Cross Parish welcomes Mike Beardsley, Bill Dehkes, and Mark Meier from the Face It Foundation for an evening of stories, fellowship, and an honest discussion about depression and suicide.
