NAMI Summit County is participating in Change Direction
Change Direction Summit County pledges to share the five signs of emotional suffering, along with information on how to get involved with changing the direction of mental health to over 50,000 citizens. We are hosting a three-day event to promote awareness throughout Summit County, Change Direction aims to place an emphasis on this largely undiscussed topic.
County Executive Russ Pry expressed during his State of the County Address that the County had a responsibility to assist those in need stating, “When we see that someone is suffering emotionally, it is up to us to show compassion, to reach out, connect, and offer to help.”
Through the Executive’s call to action, over 50 organizations have created a community-wide three-day event from July 22-24th, 2016 named “Bringing Mental Health to Main Street” that will promote awareness of the five signs of emotional suffering, educate citizens on mental health, renew a regional effort to combat the effects of mental illness, and connect those affected to the help they need.
Through community outreach, social media, radio, and print advertising, as well as spreading the word through community, religious, and local government leaders, Change Direction Summit County aims to educate on mental health issue as well as connect those dealing with emotional suffering to the help they need and services available.
