Vernon Township Mental Health Fair

Saturday, May 16, 2020 22 Iyyar 5780

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Kol Hadash's Values In Action Committee is again a co-sponser of the Vernon Township Mental Health Fair. The National Alliance of Mental Illness chapters of Lake County and Barrington Area are the other co-sponsors.

One in five people will experience a mental health crisis sometime in their lifetime (NIH data).  Suicide is the second leading cause of death for 10 - 24 year olds (Boston Hospital study).  There will be approximately twenty social, legal, and financial organizations present all dealing with mental health concerns to help explain and deal with these issues.  One of the organizations that will be at the Fair is Soul Harbor Ranch that will bring its therapy animals, all of which is something to see.

We are also looking for a volunteer or two to be at our Kol Hadash table.  It is a great way to introduce Kol Hadash to the public for this special event.  Contact Al Dorfman at Amdorfman@comcast.net if interested.
