More Info About the Mental Health Show:
The Mental Health America wants to net $10,000, which will be used to provide critical services such as mental health advocacy, education, prevention and support services for county residents, said Mary Hodson, executive director of Mental Health America of Porter County.
"We need to have the funding to sustain as well as grow our programs, and this event will help us toward that end. Our emergency funding program is running dry. Suicides are up throughout the state, and we provide services for suicide prevention and military/family support," Hodson said. Due to a lost job or a cut in income, people seek help from their agency and are the only ones in the county who provide this kind of help. One of the programs that is crucial for county residents is financial support for medications. "This program has become so critical because of the economy," Hodson said. "We are the only organization in the county that will provide support for mental health medication because it's not seen as a crisis, which is based on and lack of understanding and misinformation.
The show will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Porter County Expo Center. Admission is $4 and children 12 and younger will be admitted free. For more information call 219-462-6267, or email: email@example.com .
