Demetra Perros earned an MFA in creative nonfiction from Emerson College in Boston. Her work prompts individuals, organizations, and communities to talk—out loud—about mental health in America.
Demetra has collaborated with family medicine residencies, nursing programs, pharmacy schools, and health care centers. She visits high schools and colleges to help destigmatize mental illness and to encourage students to find their own sources of persistence. Demetra also shares her work with Greek Orthodox churches and cultural centers to perpetuate ancient art and the immigrant journey.
