'EVERY orchestra in the country has members with mental illness...
the difference is that ME2 Orchestra acknowledges this and actively
recruits players who have mental health issues, while in most orchestras
(and other groups) people struggle with stigma.'
So says ME2 Orchestra, co-founded by Ronald Braunstein and Caroline Whiddon.
They also say 'ME2 is a stigma-free zone.' They were my guests tonight
sharing their own diagnoses of bipolar and panic/anxiety disorders while
telling the story what ME2 Orchestra personally means to them.
