In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, El Dorado County Mental Health's South Lake Tahoe Clinic is hosting an Open House on Wednesday, May 13, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at its Wellness Center located at 1900 Lake Tahoe Boulevard. The event is free and open to the public.
The open house will include refreshments and door prizes, and a chance to meet with Mental Health employees. It will also include special activities, such as a showing of the film "Each Mind Matters," featuring Californians living with Mental Health issues, and a reading from the book "Regular and Decaf," focusing on schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.
“We hope the community will join us for the open house,” said Patricia Charles-Heathers, Assistant Director of El Dorado County Health Services. “We believe the event will be a great opportunity to engage with the community, to increase awareness and to decrease the stigma of mental illness.”
For questions about the event, or Mental Health services in South Lake Tahoe, please call (530) 573-7970. Additional information about El Dorado County Mental Health Services can be found at www.edcgov.us/mentalhealth
