Join Lake County Board Members Sandy Hart and Steve Carlson along with Warren Township Youth & Family Services, and the League of Women Voters of Lake County for a conversation about living with mental illness. This community event focused on reducing the stigma of mental illness will be held on Saturday, April 7, 10:00 am to noon, at the Warren-Newport Public Library, 224 O’Plaine Rd., Gurnee.
Approximately one in five adults and adolescents are affected every year, but mental illness is rarely discussed. Due to the stigma, people and their loved ones suffer in silence.
Hear from those directly affected, discuss challenges and resources with local service providers, and find out what our community can do to help. Our goal is to stamp out stigma, support caregivers, and let people know they are not alone.
For questions, email Sandy Hart at [email protected] or call 224-212-0331.
