Free Mental Health Seminars

Mid-State is offering free mental health seminars delivered by best-selling author Joseph Reid. Joseph Reid is the founder and executive director of Broken People, an international mental health peer support group. He is the best-selling author of “Broken Like Me, An Insider’s Toolkit for Mending Broken People,” which has helped thousands of people since its publication in 2021.

One of the hardest things Joe has had to learn to do is communicate with professionals and loved ones when he is emotionally at rock bottom. As a result, he created the Joe Scale (Universal Mental Health Scale) and a four-pronged method to inspire people to “You-tilize” their own unique talents.

Funding for the free sessions is provided by Marshfield Clinic Health System, Gundersen Moundview Hospital and Clinics, Moundview Memorial Healthcare Foundation, and the Mid-State Technical College Foundation, Inc.
