Mental Illness, Tragedy and Transformation: The Mark Becker Story - Joan & David Becker

September 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

The Story County Mental Health Resource Fair will precede the lecture, 6:00-7:00pm in the South Ballroom. Joan and Dave Becker share their family’s story about their son Mark and the experience they had coping with his paranoid schizophrenia. They hope it will help other families, caregivers, and professionals understand how they can make a difference in moving forward and improving our mental health system. The Beckers spent years visiting doctors, pleading with state mental health services, and trying to get their son help for what was finally diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia just three days before the unthinkable happened in their rural community of Parkersburg.
