More Info About the Mental Health
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
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
