As Mental Awareness Month draws to a close, government agencies and community-based service providers have joined forces to highlight mental health promoting practices.
The culminating event for this month is a Behavioral Health Summit, which is open and free to public.
The Summit brings together service providers, lawmakers, consumers, and the community at large to learn from each other.
Booths showcasing items and talents of consumers, families, and advocates will be available.
Morning sessions will cover topics ranging from issues impacting veterans and their families, to children’s mental health, and answers regarding Social Security.
The afternoon is an opportunity for community members to come together and discuss recommendations on ways to improve overall mental health care in the community.
This will be held at the LDS Malaeimi Stake Center Wednesday, May 31st from 9am to 3pm.
