Mental Health Month

More than 1 in 4 people struggle with mental health challenges. They are our friends, family and neighbors, and the support of our community is a vital component of their treatment, coping and recovery. But too often, stigma and discrimination discourages people from seeking the help they need.

This May, HHSA is sponsoring several community events that will entertain, educate and inspire us to stand behind our friends and loved ones who live with mental illness. It's time to Stand Against Stigma!

Stand Against Stigma Committee Meeting

 

1:30-3 p.m.

Circle of Friends  |  37095 CA-299, Burney, CA 96013

Mental illness is common. About 1 in 4 of us will have a diagnosable mental health condition within our lifetime, but only a fraction of people seek the help they need because of the fear, shame and discrimination they face. At this meeting, you will learn how to fight the stigma surrounding mental illness, substance use issues, suicide and suicide loss. You’ll also hear from Brave Faces speakers who will be sharing their true stories of recovery.


Wednesday, May 15th

Film "Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope"

 

6:30-8 p.m.

Mt. Burney Movie Theater  |  37022 CA-299, Burney, CA 96013

The documentary Resilience reveals the science behind how abuse and neglect during childhood can cause toxic stress. Toxic stress negatively affects the brains and bodies of children, increasing their likelihood of chronic disease, cancer, mental health issues, drug addiction, homelessness, incarceration, decreased work productivity, and even early death. However, there is hope. Resilience inspires those in pediatrics, education, and public service to join the movement towards healing and to promote the mindset that anyone and everyone can be a part of this generational change.
