The African American Family Outreach Project will host its free informational workshop "YOU ARE NOT ALONE," for African American families who seek support and care for those who are living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol.
Open to the community, the "You Are Not Alone" workshop is open to the entire community. Family members with lived experience say "when mental illness or substance abuse hit our loved ones, we did not know where to turn. In these workshops, we're actually able to engage with professionals to get answers! It's made a huge difference."
The session provides one-on-one opportunity to talk with mental health professionals. Time will be offered for individuals to discuss symptoms, causes and medications with a psychiatrist; an expert in dealing with drug and alcohol problems and advice from experienced family members who are willing to help.
