2022 Book Discussion: Bedlam by Kenneth Paul Rosenberg
March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Each year, Washington Women’s Foundation’s (WaWF) Member Engagement Committee (MEC) selects a book for all members to read and discuss. In 2022, MEC invites you to read Bedlam: An Intimate Journey into America’s Mental Health Crisis by Kenneth Paul Rosenberg and join us for a virtual discussion in March.
Bedlam addresses our society’s inhumane treatment and shaming of people experiencing mental illness and their families, the lack of funding for hospital beds and research into new treatment options, and failure to attract and train mental health professionals. Joining us for the discussion is Washington State Representative Tina Orwall who will lead a conversation on mental health in our state.
Bedlam is available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Random House, and other retailers. We encourage you to consider purchasing it from Bookshop.org or from your neighborhood bookstore. You can also check for the book at your local library. Currently, there are copies available at The Seattle Public Library (print and eBook), King County Library (print), Whatcom County Library System (print), and Pierce County Library System (print).
This event is open to the public and we invite WaWF members to bring a friend or two to join us. We also encourage members of our Collective Grants Committee to join the conversation, especially those working on evaluating grant applications in our Mental Health & Housing funding area. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
