“Y” partnering with Mental Health America

Posted: Friday, January 31, 2020

Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana will be providing speakers to help community members increase their awareness and knowledge around several important mental health topics and diagnoses. With the mission of promoting mental and emotional health within the community by offering advocacy, support services, education and hope, the YMCA is grateful to partner with Mental Health America on these important topics.

Sessions will be held at the YMCA location on the following Wednesdays: February 26, March 25 and April 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The following topics will be covered. February will discuss depression, bipolar disorder and other mood disorders. March will cover anxiety, trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. The last topic in April will discuss addictions. Individuals may choose to attend one, two or all three sessions as desired. Attendees who come to all three sessions will be entered into a drawing for one month free “Y” membership.

Each month the lunch will be provided by Miller’s Merry Manor, Huntington. Lunch and Learn sessions are free of charge to all community members but it is requested that interested individuals register with the “Y” by calling (260) 359-9622 or stopping by the “Y.” Parkview Huntington Family YMCA is located at 1160 W 500 N.
