Celebrate our 40th Anniversary with
An Evening of Real Life Stories and Impressions to Break Down the Barriers Around the Topic of Men’s Mental Health
Thursday, September 7, 2017
Barnstable High School Performing Arts Center
744 West Main Street, Hyannis, MA
Doors Open at 6:30 pm — Program Begins at 7 pm
To celebrate our 40th year Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands will be hosting an event that the entire community can take part in – an event relevant to our mission and programs.
We’re excited to present Darrell Hammond, New York Times bestselling author and longest-tenured cast member of Saturday Night Live, who will reveal a story you won’t soon forget.
He describes the childhood abuse and trauma that led to a secret life of self-injury and addiction. By age five, Hammond learned that by doing voices, he could make his perpetrator laugh, and even prevent abuse from occurring.
Hammond translated this survival technique into a career, bringing to life over 100 people on SNL, including President Clinton, Donald Trump, and Sean Connery, cementing his place as a comedic and pop culture icon.
Hammond will describe the lasting effects of trauma, and how he lives every day for recovery. Telling the details of his painful past, his story may shock some, but it is also a force for healing — bringing a special light to the under-discussed topic of depression among men.
The evening with Darrell Hammond concludes with a Q&A session followed by a set of his most famous impressions.
We hope that you, your family and friends are able to join us for this special occasion.
