A Dialogue on Mental Health with Dear Evan Hansen Co-Creator Benj Pasek
Join JFCS for an intimate conversation with multiaward-winning songwriter and Philly-area native Benj Pasek. This virtual event will offer a behind the scenes look at Benj’s journey as an artist, the stories that inspire him, and how his work helps to reduce stigma around mental health while encouraging self-acceptance.
This event will address the sensitive subjects of suicide and self-harm through the lens of both Benj’s work and JFCS’ services.
YOU WILL BE FOUND will feature three of Benj’s songs performed by Broadway talent and
a Q&A from audience questions submitted in advance (please submit your question when you
register.) The evening will also offer mental health support breakout rooms staffed by JFCS social workers for those who would like to continue the discussion.
