“Masks” on Display

The Castle will be displaying masks created during last fall’s Mental Illness Awareness Event at the Centerville Art Gallery within the Police Department (155 W. Spring Valley Road in Centerville).

The gallery show is open to the public any time (day or night) through the month of August and is coordinated by the Centerville Arts Commission.

This display was featured in the Summer 2013 edition of the Centerville Town Crier. Look for the television spot on Centerville Reports.

Our Community Gathers At The Castle

The Dayton community gathers at the Castle to recommit to de-mystifying and de-stigmatizing mental illness around a theme of “Changing Attitudes…Changing Lives”

 

 

 

 

 

The event included an art show – “The Masks”. Indivuals from the Castle, We Care Arts and Kettering Behavioral Medicine Center crafted masks to portray the message “You never know who is behind the mask of mental illness”.

Ryan Peirson, MD , Director of Community Psychiatry of Wright State University and Medical Director for the Montgomery County Alchohol, Drug Addicton and Mental Health Services Board delivered an inspiring key note address.

We also heard personal stories of strength and resolve from several poeple living with mental illness.

 

The event concluded with a prayer vigil led by our faith based community partners and a community grill out.
