The Friends Open Mind, Still Just A Geek with Wil Wheaton

Wednesday, MAY 25 5:00PM – 6:00PM PTStill Just A GeekRegistration is required for this free live private Zoom event.From Wil Wheaton, celebrated actor from Stand by Me, Star Trek, The Big Bang Theory, and social media supernova, comes his latest book, STILL JUST A GEEK – AN ANNOTATED MEMOIR, that tackles mental health face on. Wil Wheaton has charted a career course unlike anyone else, and has emerged as one of the most popular and well-respected names in science fiction, fantasy, and pop culture.  In Still Just a Geek, a sequel to his series of blog posts that became the book Just a Geek published in 2004, an older, somewhat wiser Wil not only reexamines his unique life in Hollywood, but also gives an incredibly raw and honest account in which he opens up about love, his mental health challenges of depression, anxiety, trauma, confronting tragedy and the worst parts of himself. Equal parts funny and poignant, Still Just a Geek weighs the folly of youth against the pain of experience – and celebrates all the strange, awful, and beautiful adventures in between.  Katrina DeBonis, MD, will join Wil Wheaton in conversation.  Dr. DeBonis is Associate Health Science Clinical Professor, Director of Residence Education in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, and Medical Director of UCLA Student Behavioral Health Services UCLA Health.  To watch videos of our past Open Mind programs, please visit or our YouTube Channel.View this email in your browserUnsubscribeThe Friends of the Semel Institute760 Westwood Plaza C7-463
