Time to Talk: A Conversation with Jonny Benjamin MBE, UK’s Award-winning mental health campaigner, author and blogger

  • GLC Lounge (Byers 417) 505 College Street New Haven, CT, 06511 United States (map)

Ten years ago, Jonny Benjamin attempted to take his own life by jumping off Waterloo Bridge, before a complete stranger, Neil Laybourn, talked him down and ultimately saved his life, inspiring the award-winning documentary, Stranger on a Bridge. Meet Jonny and Neil here.  

Please join Jonny and Neil for an informal small group discussion. Joining them is British neuroscientist and psychologist, Philip Corlett who has a long standing interest in the experiences and mechanisms of serious mental illness. Please RSVP/any questions to sheril.frano@yale.edu. We hope to see you there!
