Like all Royce Carlton Speakers, Jessie Close and Calen Pick are exclusively represented by Royce Carlton, Inc. for lectures and speaking engagement
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. But that doesn’t mean the conversation ends on the 31st.
Jessie Close and her son Calen Pick are ambassadors for Bring Change 2 Mind, a national anti-stigma campaign founded by Jessie’s sister, Glenn Close. BC2M fights the stigma of mental illness with scientific information and human stories. With the help of BC2M, Jessie and Calen show what it’s like to live with a mental illness.
As in her upcoming memoir, Resilience, which will be pubished in 2015, Jessie offers audiences the compelling story of her life before diagnosis, proving that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Her strength lives in Calen, an artist who has schizo-affective disorder and promotes artistic expression for people with mental illness. Start a dialog, end the stigma. They would love to help.
