The Southwest Regional Mental Health Board (SRMHB) has teamed up with the National Alliance for Metal Illness to present the next installment of Community Conversations as part of a national initiative designed to provide the opportunity to talk about mental health and develop recommendations for local solutions that will build healthy minds and communities.
A grant from the Fairfield County Community Conversations will be presented to local stakeholders for action. In Stamford, the conversations have been scheduled for the following Tuesdays in January, all to be hosted at the Tully Center in Stamford:
- January 14
- January 21
- January 28
Up to 25-percent of people experience some form of mental illness in their lives—whether it be anxiety, depression, or another disorder—and mental illness starting on average at age 14, virtually everyone knows someone who is struggling with this issue.
Those interested in attending are invited to sign up by Friday, January 3, 2013 at www.HealthyMindsCT.org or by calling the SRMHB at 203.840.1187.
