The event will focus on "Putting the Pieces Together: Self Advocacy, Self Esteem and Wellness" to encourage the notion of complete wellness and recovery for the mentally ill and other disabled citizens.
Last year, the Health and Wellness Fair hosted 40 exhibitors and the Mental Health Learning Forum provided 3 workshops. Both presented information focusing on wellness and recovery. Over 150 individuals attended both events; visitors included health care professionals, disability service providers, individuals with mental illness and their family members or caregivers.
This event is open to the general public. Click here to view the Forum Brochure.
