"Bipolar Boy" Paul E. Jones Speaks on Mental Health October 24

10/22/2013

A humorous look at a serious topic...

Join us for an evening of comedy, wit, and discussion about mental health and well-being. Paul E. Jones, a.k.a. “Bipolar Boy,” has been entertaining and educating audiences for more than 25 years. Paul explores the sobering issues surrounding mental health, while at the same time, using his gift of humor to make an often times serious topic educational and entertaining. 

One in four people over the age of 18 faces a mental health issue, but many are afraid to discuss those issues for fear of the stigma that is often associated with mental health conditions. Through his program, Paul seeks to make college students think about mental wellness, including such topics as freshman transitions, loneliness, peer issues, alcohol and drug use, self-care, and coping skills.

Come see why Paul has been voted “Best Mental Health Speaker” on Thursday evening, October 24th at 6 p.m. in Leone Cole Auditorium. Admission is free. 

This event is sponsored by Counseling Services, University Housing and Residence Life, NAMI - Jacksonville, Active Minds, and the JSU Peer Educators.
