"I CAN RELATE TO THAT”: A MENTAL HEALTH Q&A SESSION Join us for a town hall style gathering as our panel of mental health experts listen to your questions and concerns and offer answers in a comfortable, safe setting. People are generally aware of the importance of physical health but often don't consider how dependent physical and mental health are on each other. Our panel will answer your questions and examine how contemporary life has impacted our collective mental health. Registration is required. Join us as we celebrate 50 years of connecting communities. This program is part of a series of programs for everyone that allow us to look at our past, present and future.
