African American Families & Mental Illness & Drugs Workshop – “You Are Not Alone”
June 22 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pmFree
On Saturday, June 22, 2019, 9:30am – 2:30pm, the African American Family Outreach Project will host its free informational workshop “YOU ARE NOT ALONE,” for African American families who seek support and care for those who are living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol with an opportunity to talk with several mental health professionals.
Open to the community, the “You Are Not Alone” workshop is open to the entire community and will take place at The Charles Porter Golden Gate Recreation Center, 1075 62nd Street, Oakland, CA
Family members with lived experience say “when mental illness or substance abuse hit our loved ones, we did not know where to turn. In these workshops, we’re actually able to talk with the managing psychiatrist for Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services and get answers! It’s made a huge difference.”
Time will be offered for individuals to discuss symptoms, causes and medications with a psychiatrist; an expert in dealing with drug and alcohol problems and advice from experienced family members who are willing to help.
Lunch is provided free of charge. Advance registration is required for proper lunch planning. The registration deadline is Thursday, June 20th.
