Maintaining a healthy brain at every stage of life will be the focus of more than twenty talks, films, and panel discussions during CONNECT Summit County’s May Mental Health Awareness Month. The events, free and open to the public, will bring experts to the county for a month-long consumer education campaign. Programs will focus on a range of issues from teen suicide and early detection/intervention of adolescent psychosis to Alzheimer’s and sleep disorders. Research on the effects of living at altitude on depression, suicide prevention, and cutting edge trauma treatment are also among the topics to be addressed.
CONNECT, along with the Park City Community Foundation and the Summit County Health Department are pleased to present keynote speaker Leon Evans, President/CEO for The Center for Health Care Services of San Antonio, TX and featured Boston Globe Spotlight Series contributor, to address the topic: “Getting it right on Mental Health and Substance Abuse: The San Antonio Experience.” San Antonio is a city that many people across the nation think has gotten it right on mental health and substance abuse. The Summit County Mental Wellness Summit will be held on April 21, 2017 from 9AM-Noon at the Blair Conference Center at Park City Hospital. The event is free and the public is welcome.
