Knowing how to access mental health resources has never been more important. That’s why Intermountain Health is sponsoring a Mental Health Services Awareness Night to help connect people with vital available resources. The free event will take place on Thursday, October 26 from 6 to 9 pm at the Ragan Theater at Utah Valley University. It is open to anyone in Utah who would like to know more about the resources available to those struggling with mental health challenges. Opportunities include speakers, breakout classes, information booths, and more on how to access mental health services. A complete list of speakers and presenters is available at here.
The Keynote speaker is Donia Jessop, mayor of Hildale City, Utah, who will discuss personal challenges she faced and how vital resources were to support her in her transition from an oppressive community to become the first non-FLDS endorsed as well as female mayor. Ashley Schlaich, RN, pediatric behavioral health outpatient services director for the soon to open Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital campus in Lehi, will be another keynote speaker. She’ll discuss the new resources that will be coming early next year with the opening of the new facility and the many mental health services that the new hospital will bring to families and children in Utah County. Community partners for the event include Intermountain Health, the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, Utah Valley University, Aspen Grove Behavioral Hospital, and the Comprehensive Clinic at Brigham Young University.
