MAY is MENTAL HEALTH Month!
This is the Sixth of our Wellness Wednesday Series
The presenter for today’s topic will be Tim Denney from the Northwestern Mental Health Center in Crookston MN. http://www.nwmhc.org/
For many people with mental or emotional health difficulties, substance abuse is also a factor that complicates living and impedes progress on developing better life skills and outcomes. For some, substance abuse may be “hiding” or masking an underlying emotional or mental health difficulty, which may complicate or disrupt completely any attempts to treat the substance use. In an interactive, discussion-oriented presentation led by Tim Denney, Training Director at the Northwestern Mental Health Center, the topics of mental health and substance abuse will be explored, including the interaction between the two difficulties, options for seeking help, and strategies for helping friends or family members.
