SANTA ROSA, CA — Sonoma County Board of Supervisors members, Shirlee Zane and Lynda Hopkins, with special guest Congressman Mike Thompson, invite all community members to attend the Mental Health Resiliency Forum on Thursday, February 22nd. The Forum will feature a Resources and Services Fair starting at 6:00 p.m. before the main presentation and moderated panel begins at 7:00 p.m.
“The catastrophic fires have left our community with the enormous task of grieving together and surviving the trauma we are left with,” said Supervisor Shirlee Zane. “We want you to know that we are here for you. The process of healing involves all of us, healthcare providers, county services, non-profits, and the faith based community.”
The Forum will provide an opportunity for Sonoma County community members to learn about available mental health resources and services and to hear expert panelists speak on trauma and how to foster well-being during this difficult time.
“The Mental Health Resiliency Forum is an opportunity to come together as neighbors, friends, and as one community to learn about all of the resources that are available to support mental health,” said Supervisor Lynda Hopkins. “Gathering necessary information is an important component of efforts to help us move forward.”
