Power Exchange and Mental Illness, presented by Auntie Vice


Anywhere from 20 to 25 percent of Americans live with some form of mental illness. Loving someone with a mental illness and living with a mental illness provides unique challenges to all relationships. Learning the special considerations for a partner with mental illness, how to communicate about an illness, and how to deal with the various challenges takes time and learning.

This class discusses the added challenge of power exchange when one or both partners are living with a mental illness. It covers the "secretary fantasy" of Domming your partner out of a mental illness. It also discusses coping tools, ways to communicate, and sources to learn and gain support.

This class spends special time on the more common illnesses such as major depression, manic-depression, anxiety, OCD, social anxiety disorder, and ADD/ADHD.

Class from 8-10pm, doors open at 7:30pm
Cost: $20 at the door, $15 in advance using PurplePass:
