"One Story At A Time" invites you to join us for the first part of the life of an Erasing the Distance story, the interview process. Join us for casual conversation in a longer format where individuals share about their mental health experiences. The content from these recordings is then transcribed word for word and shaped down into a 10 minute monologue, which is then performed by professional actors in lives performances across the country.
