Mental Health Housing — A Panel Discussion
February 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
For someone with a mental health condition, the basic necessity of a stable home can be hard to come by. When this need isn’t met, many people cycle in and out of homelessness, shelters and hospitals. Having a safe and secure place that allows a person with a mental illness to live as independently as possible is a vital part of the recovery journey.
We have assembled a panel of professionals who will discuss different types of housing and the varying degrees of independence and care they offer.
Panelists include Floren L. Schertzer, LCSW and Social Worker, Sarah Bell, Director of Community Outreach at BlueSky Behavioral Health, John Labieniec, LCSW, Vice President of Acute and Recovery Services, Continuum of Care, Inc., and Valerie S. Williams, Executive Director, Keystone House, Inc.
The panel discussion, “Mental Health Housing,” will be held on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 from 7:30 to 9:00 pm at the Tully Center Auditorium, 32 Strawberry Hill Court, Stamford, CT. The presentation is free and open to the public.
