      You Are Not Alone!

      The African American Family Support Group will host "You Are Not Alone," as part of their free workshop series for family members who seek support and care for those who are living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol with an opportunity to talk with a host of mental health professionals.

      Family members with lived experience say "when mental illness or substance abuse hit our loved ones, we did not know where to turn. In these workshops we're actually able to talk with the managing psychiatrists for Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services and get answers! It's made a huge difference."

      Ample time will be provided for individuals to discuss symptoms, causes and medications with a psychiatrist; programs and services by a certified drug and alcohol counselor and experienced family members who are willing to help.

      The event is free and open to all community members, and lunch will be provided to registered participants.

      This event is part of the African American Family Outreach Project which was approved by the African American Steering Committee for Health and Wellness and paid for by Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services using Mental Health Services Act funds.
