      Greetings,

      On Saturday, October 12th there will be an important citywide town meeting to discuss mental health issues in the District of Columbia. This meeting, hosted by Mayor Vincent C. Gray, is a response to President Obama’s recent call for a nationwide conversation on mental health issues. Creating Community Solutions – D.C. will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. A free breakfast and lunch, as well as other refreshments, will be provided for everyone who attends.

      This interactive town meeting will provide an opportunity for residents, health care providers and District agencies to discuss mental and behavioral health issues, especially as they impact young people. Hundreds of District residents are expected to generate ideas about how to reduce the stigma associated with, and increase openness to, mental health care. Seating is limited and it is important to register in advance. Please visit www.creatingcommunitysolutions.org for more information.

      I hope you will plan now to attend this innovative and important community meeting. We need to hear from people of all ages and from all across the District. Please register to attend and also invite other people who may be interested. Thank you for your attention to this request and for anything you can do to help promote this important town meeting on mental health.

      Best regards,
