Town of Brookhaven: Mental Health Awareness Week Kick-Off
Presented by Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Valerie M. Cartright
Contact: Jennifer L. Martin, MPA, J.D., 631-451-6963
Community and government mental health providers are invited to attend this Town Board meeting to kick-off Mental Health Awareness Week and make a brief statement during the Public Comment portion of the meeting. The goal is to make the public aware of the scope of mental illness and the resources available. The Town will also launch a public awareness campaign and encourage the community to take the "Stigma Free" pledge by making the pledge available on the Town website, and sending it to community organizations and schools. Town Board members will also take the pledge at the meeting.
