Presented by the Public Health Workforce at Maryland Centers for Independent Living. This collaborative event has been funded by Maryland Public Health funds.

Living with a disability (or more than one) is a journey filled with ups and downs. There are plenty of successes to celebrate, but everyday life presents challenges that have to be overcome and can sometimes get us down. Through all the ups and downs, there’s nothing quite as empowering as the realization that there are other people who get it. Join us as we hear from a mental health professional on the unique power of support for people with disabilities and how we can leverage that support to make a positive difference for ourselves and others.

Speaker: Mirranda Williams, MSW

She has founded InspEYEre Consulting, a dedicated platform providing resources and support groups for mental health issues among seniors living with blindness. Ms. Williams’ mission is to change society’s perception of individuals with disabilities, particularly focusing on empowering individuals and seniors who are blind to maintain independence and challenge the notion of helplessness.
