Community Mental Health Offers Program on Mental Health Recovery
Being diagnosed with a mental illness is something people neither plan for nor expect. Life may suddenly appear confusing and even overwhelming for them, as well as their friends and family members.
The Community Network Services Anti-Stigma team will be presenting a program based upon the timeless classic “The Wizard of Oz” to enlighten people about the challenges people with mental health disorders may encounter on their “recovery journey”.
The imaginative, honest, and humorous presentation will take place at the Farmington Hills City Hall, 31555 W. 11 Mile Rd., Farmington Hills, MI 48336, on Wednesday, June 20 from 7 p.m.-8 p.m.
Mental health treatment options may appear limited and the future uncertain because the assistance available is not well known or understood. This lack of awareness can lead to misconceptions about those with a mental illness and the very real possibilities for recovery.
Similar to the advances in physical healthcare, the implementation of treatment best practices, enhancement in medication effectiveness, and identification of proven supports/services have advanced the positive outcomes possible for those experiencing mental health challenges. Mental health resource representatives will be available before and after the presentation.
The event is co-sponsored by Community Network Services, Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority, and the Farmington Area Suicide Prevention Task Force.
