Saturday, July 13: A Community Conversation About Mental Health
Join NAMI Atlanta/ Auburn for a conversation on mental health. Discussion will focus on reducing the stigma associated with mental illness that leads to the ostracization of individuals with mental illness, discourages people from seeking help when they are struggling, and creates public apathy toward improving mental health care services.
In 2008, the US House of Representatives established July as Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month. This observance aims to improve access to mental health treatment and services for multicultural communities through increased public awareness. Visit National Alliance for Mental Illness (Nami) www.namiatlantaauburn.org to learn more and help increase public awareness in our community.
January 16, 2013, Former President Barack Obama directed Former Secretary Kathleen Sebelis of the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and Former Secretary Arne Duncan of the U.S. Department of Education to launch a national conversation on mental health to reduce the shame and secrecy associated with mental illness, encourage people to seek help if they are struggling with mental health problems, and encourage individuals whose friends and family are struggling to connect them to help. Nami Atlanta/Auburn wants to continue this conversation with your help and attendance we can reduce the stigma in our communities.
