The Path Not Chosen: Stories of Mental Health

Columbus-based poet Alexis-Rueal created The Path Not Chosen event to provide an artistic alternative to stigma and silence. The poems you’ll hear offer candid, evocative, sometimes funny, and — ultimately hopeful — depictions of living with a different kind of mental health.

Featured on the show are the evening’s host and MC, Vernell Bristow, and (in order of appearance), Zach Hannah, Christina Szuch, Sarah Trattner, Casey Krysztofik, T-Shirt, Gray Clark, and Alexis-Rueal.
