The Tony Award-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen has announced that it will cohost an invite-only mental health symposium, titled You Will Be Found, along with Time magazine and the beauty brand Philosophy during Mental Health Month. The event will take place on Thursday, May 10, at 3:30pm, at the downtown offices of the Meredith Corporation.

You Will Be Found will feature mental-health-focused conversations and a performance from the cast of Dear Evan Hansen. The panel will include actor and activist Rowan Blanchard; the musical's book writer, Steven Levenson; and mental-health experts Dr. Harold Koplewicz (founder of Child Mind Institute), John MacPhee (CEO and executive director of JED Foundation), and Jeannette Pai-Espinosa (president of National Crittenton).

The conversation will be streamed live on Time's Facebook page, and a limited number of tickets will be made available to Dear Evan Hansen fans and New York City public school students.

With a Tony-winning score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, and a Tony-winning book by Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen is described as follows: "A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he's always wanted: a chance to finally fit in."
