Mendocino County's First 'Stepping Up Intiative' Community Forum, presented by National Alliance on Mental Illness
Approximately 2 million individuals who suffer from serious mental illness are incarcerated each year across the United States. Mendocino County, not being immune to this problem, aims to reduce the number of people with mental illness in local jails. With the support and guidance of the Mendocino County National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Mendocino County is hosting its first Community Forum to discuss our local efforts. The Community Forum will be held in two locations:
Wednesday, May 8, 2019
Ukiah Veterans Hall, 293 Seminary Avenue
Thursday, May 9, 2019
Fort Bragg Veterans Hall, 360 Harrison Avenue
Each day and location will host both an Educational Session from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and a Public Forum from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
