PathPoint in the News- May 2015
Ever since 1949, Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed in May by reaching millions of people in the United States through the media, local events, and screenings.
Its purpose is to educate communities about psychological disorders, while reducing the stigma that surrounds them.
The month came about by presidential proclamation.
This year's May is Mental Health Month Campaign uses the theme B4Stage4 and focuses on how people can address their mental health early, rather than at "Stage 4" - when symptoms are more severe, and recovery a longer process:
For over 35 years now, residential treatment, supported housing, dual-diagnosis and homeless services have been part of PathPoint’s scope of services in response to the needs of clients of the County Mental Health Department.
Today, our Behavioral Health Division’s goals are to help our participants live healthy, productive, and fulfilling lives.
In short: Wellness. Recovery. Hope.
