ALBUQUERQUE’S COMMUNITY CONVERSATION ON MENTAL HEALTH INVITES YOU TO THE NORTH WEST ALBUQUERQUE MEETING
SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 2014
Mental health affects nearly all families – perhaps someone you know. Addressing this issue is vital to the health of our community. Together we can have an open conversation and make a difference.
President Obama has called for an honest, national conversation about mental health to move beyond stereotypes and stigmas and toward solutions and priorities that improve our mental health and mental health systems – with a special focus on young people.
CALL TO ACTION
Albuquerque was the first city in the country to answer this call to action. Mayor Richard J. Berry hosted a community conference on July 20, 2013 creating the Greater Albuquerque dialogue on mental health, called Creating Community Solutions – Albuquerque.
“I am honored that our community has been chosen to open this national dialogue with discussions that ultimately lead to action plans designed to improve mental health programs and services for our families, schools and communities,” said Mayor Berry.
CREATING COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS
Building on the important work already started by the City’s July conference, six neighborhood conversations will take place throughout the Greater Albuquerque Region. Participants will be representative of neighborhood communities, especially the involvement of young people, mental health providers, people with lived experience in mental health, and family members of people with lived
North West Albuquerque is the second of the neighborhood dialogues and you are invited. This event is free and provides a welcoming and safe opportunity for dialogue. People will take part in small‐group conversations where they will have a chance to share their concerns, talk about what the community is facing, and come up with action ideas and priorities for the Greater Albuquerque Area.
JOIN THE DISCUSSION
Someone you know could be suffering from mental health problems in silence. It could be a friend, family member, co‐worker or a neighbor. You can help. Register now to be involved in the discussion.
