Jacksonville State University
is not something many folks want to talk about these days, much less
laugh about, but that is just what Paul Jones does. Many people say they
are afraid to tell anyone they have bi-polar illness or depression.
Jones embraces it in order to show others they are not alone.
"The students on your campus are my main concern. The 'stigma'
surrounding mental illness is causing not only
mental health issues to go
untreated, but also
drug and alcohol abuse
to grow in the form of self-medication as well," says Jones.
Everyone -- students, family, and friends -- is invited to come. FREE
ADMISSION!!! Come hear Paul Jones on Wednesday, November 5 at 7 p.m. in
State University Leone Cole Auditorium. The Paul E. Jones
event will be entertaining as well as educational and is sponsored by
National Alliance on
Mental Illness (NAMI)-Jacksonville, JSU Counseling and
Career Services, and JSU Athletics.
