Seriously! Are We There Yet?! – Stay Calm & Journey On
Free Virtual Event, October 6, 2020 @ 2 pm ET (90-minutes)
With October designated as Emotional Wellness Month and World Mental Health Day being observed on October 10, we invite you to JOIN US for a free virtual event “Stay Calm & Journey On” taking place on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at 2 pm EST. Come take a breather from “adulting” when surrounded by madness, as communications veteran, mental health advocate, and published author Paolina Milana, joined by graphic artist and illustrator Whitney Horton, shares her latest book, “Seriously! Are We There Yet?!” This conversation is for the millions of us who may be struggling with this thing we call life, especially during these challenging times. It includes “story-time” with a sharing of the inspirational rhyming romp written for we “grown-ups” living in the real world, faking it, sometimes making it, and more often than not failing and wondering WTF…?; How did we end up here?; Where do we go now?; and, How much longer ’til we ‘arrive’?
This 90-minute program (that includes Q & A) will speak to communications professionals who tend to always put on that brave face and positive messaging. We invite everyone to “come as they are” to get a mental health boost no matter where they are finding themselves emotionally. Mental health tips, tools, and resources will be shared during and following the event with educational and motivational content coinciding with other related events throughout the month of October.
Published author, speaker, podcaster, content producer, and Founder of Madness To Magic, Paolina Milana’s mission is to share stories that celebrate the triumph of the human spirit and the power that lies within each of us to bring about change for the better. Her professional background includes telling other people’s stories, both as a journalist and as a PR and digital media/marketing executive.
