October 6-12 is Mental Illness Awareness Week
Please join Palomar College Student Health Center & Behavioral Health Counseling Services in raising awareness about mental health with NAMI San Diego on Monday, October 7th at 1:00pm in LRC-116 at the San Marcos campus.
NAMI In Our Own Voice presentations change attitudes, assumptions and ideas about people with mental health conditions. This presentation provides a personal perspective of mental health conditions, as leaders with lived experience talk openly about what it’s like to have a mental health condition.
This presentation provides:
- An opportunity to hear open and honest perspectives on a highly misunderstood topic
- A chance to ask leaders questions, allowing for a deeper understanding of mental health conditions and dispelling of stereotypes and misconceptions
- The understanding that people with mental health conditions have lives enriched by hopes, dreams and goals
- Information on how to learn more about mental health and get involved with the mental health community
