You Are Not Alone Workshop
March 21, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
On Saturday, March 21, 9:30am – 2:30pm, the African American Family Outreach Project will continue hosting its free informational workshop series “YOU ARE NOT ALONE.” This workshop is particularly designed for African American families who support and care for individuals who are living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol with opportunities to talk with several mental health professionals.
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 planning. The registration deadline is Thursday, March 19th.
