Bake it Till You Make it: Live!, inspired by Dayna Altman’s first of its kind mental health cookbook Bake it Till You Make it: Breaking Bread Building Resilience, is a life baking demonstration and storytelling event rolled into one. During this session Dayna will share her mental health story while facilitating a cooking demonstration. Dayna will use the ingredients as metaphors to tell her own story of recovery and living with mental illness. Watch as she teaches you a new recipe and deconstructs stigma.
