A free program outlining mental-health services available to adults in Fairfield County is planned Sunday afternoon, May 6, at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church.
The program is slated from noon to 2 p.m. and is open to the public at the 160 Hill farm Road church, Our Saviour's said in a news release.
A panel of local mental-health experts will review services available both to patients diagnosed with mental illnesses and support programs for their families, the church said.
Services to be covered include inpatient and outpatient treatment; case management; wellness-
recovery plans; community psychosocial, residential and supported apartment programs; and community support groups.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, mental illness impacts the lives of at least one in four adults and one in 10 children -- or 60 million Americans, the church said.
The program is being held in conjunction with Mental Health Month. After the presentation, light refreshments will be served and the speakers will be available to answer questions and provide additional information, according to the news release.
