Share this page:
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, 9:30am – 2:30pm, the African American Family Outreach Project will host its free informational workshop “YOU ARE NOT ALONE,” for African American families who seek support and care for those who are living with mental illness and/or addicted to drugs or alcohol with an opportunity to talk with several mental health professionals.

Open to the community, the “You Are Not Alone” workshop is open to the entire community and will take place at the East Oakland Senior Center, 9255 Edes Avenue, Oakland, CA.

Family members with lived experience say “when mental illness or substance abuse hit our loved ones, we did not know where to turn. In these workshops, we’re actually able to talk with the managing psychiatrist for Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services and get answers! It’s made a huge difference.”
