The city will host a mental health forum Tuesday to gain insight from community members on a new mental health initiative designed to provide “whole-person care” in Long Beach, according to officials.
The forum will take place Tuesday from 5:00PM to 7:00PM at the American Gold Star Manor and is sponsored by the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services, Mental Health America, Long Beach Building Healthy Communities and the California Endowment, according to a release issued Friday.
“Part of having a healthy city is supporting the mental health of residents,” said Mayor Robert Garcia in a statement. “This forum provides an opportunity for the community to share ideas and strategies for creating healthy community, and I encourage anyone with an interest to attend.”
Community members are encouraged to attend the forum and help shape the new “Health Neighborhood Initiative.”
