Stories That Heal is a series that highlights local authors who live with and/or have a loved one who lives with mental health conditions. Their stories of lived experience promote empathy, foster resilience, and uncover the truths about living with a mental health diagnosis.
During each event, an author will read an excerpt from their book and a moderated Q&A will follow.
Please join us as we celebrate Pittsburgh literature and fight stigma!
This Month’s Featured Writer:
Listen, Lucy—founded by Jordan Corcoran—is a place to express yourself freely, creatively and anonymously to find comfort in seeing you are not alone. Nationally recognized motivational speaker, mental health advocate and author, Jordan Corcoran is a Mercyhurst College graduate with a story to share.
During her freshman year, she was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder. After going through a difficult struggle with coming to terms and learning to cope, Jordan created an outlet where people can opening and candidly share their own personal challenges and struggles.
Now Jordan’s time is spent touring around the country speaking to students about her story and the importance of acceptance – of others and of yourself. She is the author of Listen Lucy Volume 1, has been featured on Today.com and UpWorthy for her self love campaigns and was a keynote speaker at NAMI and other mental health organizations. Her mission is simple: she wants to create a less judgmental and more accepting world.
