Mental health issues have made the news recently and how we address those issues as a community are of great importance to our city. Bullying. Depression. Drug Use. Suicide. There are lots of mental health issues affecting youth in DC. Come talk about what mental health means to you, and how you can help yourself or others to get help. Join Mayor Gray’s citywide forum on Saturday, October 12th to learn the facts about mental health issues in the District of Columbia. Topics of discussion will include:
- How to reduce the stigma associated with mental health care and increase people’s openness to it
- How to understand the range of challenges youth face around mental health
- How to support youth more effectively in our community when they encounter mental health challenges
