Submitted by the Event Organizer
The African American Family Outreach Project host “YOU ARE NOT ALONE,” a virtual gathering for African American families who seek support and guidance as they care for loved ones living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol.
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 engage with professionals to get answers! It’s made a huge difference.”
The session provides one-on-one opportunity to talk with mental health professionals including psychiatrist and internist, Dr. Lester Love M.D. and licensed alcohol and drug counselor, Rev. Kenneth Love who will provide further support for families who are struggling with mental illness, substance abuse and/or addiction.
Time will be offered 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.
Open and free to the entire community. RSVP via https://bit.ly/AAFOPNovember2021 or call 510-697-8533 for more information.
