Each year, PLAN of Georgia helps families dealing with mental illness challenges. No matter what stage they are in their journey - from an initial crisis where they need help finding resources and putting order back into their lives to families wanting to be certain that someone will care for their loved ones when they are no longer able to do so , PLAN of Georgia is there.
The holiday season is a busy time for most. There is so much to do, attend and plan, which can bring up feelings of being overwhelmed, anxious, stressed, and depressed. Conversely, this is also a time where people may feel acutely aware of the void left by the loss of a loved one, and their own personal loneliness.
October 10 is World Mental Health Day, a day for us to unite in our efforts to improve the mental health of people around the world. The theme this year is suicide prevention. Every 40 seconds, someone loses their life to suicide. We challenge you to take 40 seconds of action this World Mental Health Day to help raise awareness and prevent suicide.
PLAN of Georgia exhibited on Saturday, September 28 at the NAMI Northside Atlanta Mental Health Fair held at the Mt. Pisgah Church in Johns Creek. It was an exciting opportunity to learn what services are available in Atlanta for those impacted by mental illness and listen to Keynote speaker, Dr. Steven Lee, Medical Director of the Ridgeview Institute and Youth and Adult Psychiatrist and Addictionologist.
