A Public Conversation on Depression, Hope, and Healing
7pm doors and refreshments, 7:30pm Start

Dr. Aaron Kheriaty will address the complex problem of depression from multiple perspectives—biological, psychological, social, and spiritual—and suggest resources for hope and healing. Kheriaty believes individuals suffering from depression, including patients facing a terminal diagnosis, should be accompanied with solidarity. In that light he believes assisted suicide and euthanasia represent abandonment of vulnerable individuals at the time when they most need healing and care.
