In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month which has been observed in the U.S. since 1949., Marcia Johnson, League president, had a conversation about this very important subject. Many in Newton have experienced mental health challenges, whether it be themselves personally, a family member, friend or co-worker. This is the first of a two-part program where the League will familiarize you with some of the resources and services available to community residents. Marcia Johnson, has a conversation with:
- Suzi Newman, NAMI Newton/Wellesley, President
- Meghan Kennedy, Director of Social Services, Newton’s Health & Human Services Department
The focus of the conversation was youth/students, families, and seniors and the availability of resources from City Hall and non-profits, such as NAMI.
