GBH/HCH April Lunch and Lecture: Marya Hornbacher on Mental Health and Addiction

Happy Equinox! Mark your calendars for our April Lunch and Lecture, co-sponsored by Greater Boston Humanists and the Humanist Community at Harvard. On APRIL 14 at noon, we'll offer a buffet lunch, followed by a talk by author and activist Marya Hornbacher at 1 pm. This will be at our usual meeting place in the Phillips Brooks House in Harvard Yard, Cambridge.

Two of the core principles of Humanism are acknowledging reality and connecting with our fellow human beings. The former often requires us to find rational, healthy ways to respond to times of crisis. The latter encourages us to do so in community.

Mental health and addiction are two facets of human reality that have historically been treated through and by religious institutions (such as church support groups and Alcoholics Anonymous). We invite you to think about these topics within Humanist community, and with an expert facilitator: Marya Hornbacher, author of Wasted, Madness, and Waiting: A Nonbeliever's Higher Power, each of which addresses mental health and addiction from a Humanist perspective.

Greater Boston Humanists' President Dr. Joe Gerstein will be on hand. Dr. Gerstein is Founding President of the SMART Recovery Self-Help Network, one of Greater Boston Humanists' most important projects.

FREE PARKING in the Littauer Library Lot near the Science Center will be available during the event: Enter the Science Quadrangle from Oxford St. and follow the road through to its end in the Science Center/Law Library area. Phillips Brooks House is in the very corner of Harvard Yard (which is also accessible by the MBTA).
