I'll Have What She's Having
by Women Who Know How to Stir the Pot

WellWeek

Welcome to WellWeek 2018, a Houston-born initiative to raise awareness about common medical problems:

depression and anxiety.

One in five Houstonians suffers from mental illness. Through conversation, we seek to eliminate the stigma that prevents many of our loved ones from seeking help.

 

WellWeek

October 7th - October 13th

IHWSH invites our city’s restaurants, bars and coffeeshops to join this effort to stimulate discussion around and funds for the treatment of mental illness. Eateries will offer a "depressed dessert” - confection to remind diners that one in five Houstonians may have trouble appreciating the sweeter parts of life. Bars will offer non-alcoholic beverages that rival the complexity of a cocktail in support of individuals whose healing requires moderation or abstention from alcohol.
