Public invited to dialogue on mental health

Posted: Friday, March 29, 2019

The Huntington Prevention Task Force will host an upcoming Community Dialogue entitled, “How Understanding My Mental Health Changed My Life,” on Monday, April 8. The dialogue will be held at the Huntington City-Township Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m.

The purpose of the Community Dialogues on Diversity series is to bring people together around topics that affect our community and to hear different thoughts and opinions in order to understand one another more fully in diversity and disagreement. These Dialogues align with and put into action the Huntington City Council mission statement which reads that Huntington will be ‘a community of civility and inclusion, where diversity is honored and differences are respected.’

Panel members for the April 8 Dialogue will consist of four individuals sharing their stories around their mental health diagnoses and journeys along with their perceptions of stigma and treatment. The audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions. The Dialogue will be a very relaxed, informal, conversation-based event. Resources will also be available to anyone with questions about mental health treatment options in Huntington County.

These dialogues are free and open to the public. For questions or more information, please call Victory Noll Center at (260) 200-1740.
