"Mental Illness, Tragedy and Transformation," Joan and Dave Becker share their family's story about their son, Mark, and the experience they had coping with his paranoid schizophrenia.

The Story County Mental Health Resource Fair will precede the lecture, 6:00-7:00pm in the South Ballroom.

Representatives from ISU Police Department and Student Health and Wellness will be available to share information on campus resources during the closing Q&A discussion.

Joan Becker's book, Sentenced to Life, shares how their personal family experience served as the catalyst for her to become an advocate and public speaker for individuals with mental illness.
