May is Mental Health Awareness Month with Lunch/Seminar Planned

2016 Luncheon Speaker

Hardin County is joining with organizations and individuals throughout the U.S. in recognizing May as Mental Health Awareness Month. The theme of this year’s awareness campaign is Risky Business, intended to raise awareness of the risks that increase or exacerbate mental illnesses and provide warning signs and resources for prevention and early intervention. About one in five adults suffer from a diagnosable mental health episode in a given year. Mental health disorders are the leading cause of disability in the U.S. While mental health conditions are common, they are extremely treatable and most individuals that receive appropriate treatment recover and lead full productive lives.

Seminar & Luncheon

In an effort to increase awareness locally, Hardin County Faith in Action and Community Services will sponsor the 18th Annual Mental Health Awareness Seminar on May 24th.  The speaker for the event will be Patti Treibel-Leeds, LBSW, MS.  Treibel-Leeds will present “Recovery:  Healing Happens!”  She will discuss new information related to the connection of trauma to mental health issues.  She will present the principles of the Trauma Informed approach, and share the stages of recovery in reaching resiliency.

The event will be held on May 24th at 11:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 619 Main Street, in Iowa Falls. A luncheon will be served prior to the presentation.

The event, intended to raise awareness throughout the area, is open to all, however, RSVPs are requested.  Please contact Hardin County Community Services at 641-939-8167 to make a reservation.
