Community Conversation on Mental Health

Project Civil Discourse logoSedona AZ (September 8, 2013)Sedona Verde Valley community members are invited to join five other Arizona communities in a live streamed statewide conversation on Mental Health on Wednesday, September 25, 2013. The live stream is scheduled from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m at Yavapai College Sedona Center for Arts and Technology, 4215 Arts Village Drive, Room #34, Sedona. This Healthy Communities: Focus on Mental Health programĀ is sponsored by Project Civil Discourse (www.projectcivildiscourse.org), a statewide collaboration among organizations committed to civic engagement and constructive public dialogue.

The Project Civil Discourse program is a response to President Obama’s call for a national dialogue on mental health. It provides a unique opportunity for community members to engage in public discourse about pressing topics related to mental health in the context of creating healthy communities.

The program consists of a panel of experts who will share background information through a live video feed from Phoenix to six sites around the state and answer questions. Then, community participants will engage in small group discussions to share information and explore challenges.

The panel members are Chick Arnold, lawyer with the firm of Frazer Ryan Goldberg Arnold; Jane Kallal, Executive Director of Family Involvement Center; Tomas Leon, President, People of Color Network; and Dr. James McLoone, Chairman, Department of Psychiatry at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital.

The event is free and open to the public.

Project Civil Discourse is a collaboration of organizations from around the state to provide opportunities for the public to participate in trainings, forums, and special events that share, model and provide insight on collaborative problem-solving skills. The program goal is to widely share proven skills that can enhance and improve debate and discussion about the important issues that affect our future.

    Walking with friends in Sedona near our grocery stores proves how disgusting is it to see all those drugged out people hanging out. Sedona rehab clinics attracts this kind. There is enough charity in this state to feed everybody, house everybody, clothe everybody & AA and NA meetings to right the world. There is not enough charity or $$ to build character and integrity. There is not enough charity to help those that expect help because they’re never satisfied. Teach people to fish. That’s true charity & love for humankind.
