Event description

Description

Oakland, CA - On Saturday, January 26, 2019 the African American Family Outreach Project will host a special workshop from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at the Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline St., Berkeley, CA

The free workshop series offers 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 several 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 psychiatrist 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; an expert in dealing with drug and alcohol problems and advice from experienced family members who are willing to help.

A free lunch is provided, so advance registration is required.

Registration deadline: Thursday, January 24th
