Inspire Cafe is a monthly gathering to promote dialogue on the intersections of mental health within our communities. Forest City Float and Namaste Studios will host the event in their beautiful yoga studio. Speakers will be invited to give a short talk on issues regarding mental health, mental wellness, mental illness, and suicide prevention. The participants will be given time for smaller group, roundtable dialogues. Our expert speakers will stay and facilitate the group for the gathering.

We all probably struggle with some form of mental illness. We all can benefit from bringing this subject to light, to break the silence around the stigma of mental illness.

"I often describe teaching with TLC because I do not know who is in front of me, I do not know what happened in your childhood, what you dealt with last night at home or what you endure at work." says Tami Bogard, Yoga Instructor.

"Instead of stuffing down mental health issues in our society, like we have done for so long, I think we are currently on a trajectory that is encouraging honest, open dialogue about these issues that get to the heart of the matter." says Kayla Harlan, Yoga Instructor.

Along with our partner NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) we hope to reach people where they are and supply them with the tools for self care.
