Group working to spread awareness of mental health issues through Kalamazoo forum
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A grassroots organization helps spread awareness about mental health issues through a forum in Kalamazoo.
According to Emerging Hope, which sponsored the event, one in four adults nationwide experience mental illness in a given year.
Organizers tell us this forum helps provide a place where individuals, groups and other organizations can come together to educate each other about mental illness.
They also hope this will help reduce the stigma that they say is sometimes is associated with it.
This is the 10th year Emerging Hope has hosted the event.
