News/Media Name: Oneida County Prevention Council Calls upon the Community to take Action in Celebrating Mental Health Awareness Month and National Prevention Week in May
Press Copy: May 2012 – Mental Health Awareness Month has been celebrated throughout the world for over 50 years. •In the United States, 26.2% of individuals over the age of 18 suffer from some form of mental illness, in any given year. •1 in 8 children living in the
United States suffers from an emotional or behavioral disorder. •In Oneida County, compared to the national average, our youth are at a higher risk of depression and serious contemplation of suicide, than ever before. As a community, our best chance of understanding
and preventing mental health issues – like depression and substance abuse, and breaking the stigma associated with them – is to openly discuss these issues & diminish the negative impact that mental disorders have on our children, families and the community.
The Oneida County Prevention Council (OCPC) aims to improve the mental health of our community through delivering substance abuse education, as well as substance abuse and violence prevention programs to local youth. The Center for Family Life and Recovery,
Inc. provides support, as well as substance abuse and mental health counseling, to individuals and families in need. The Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc.’s Prevention Council, invites you to attend the agency’s community Open House and Informational
Expo during National Prevention Week (May 20–26) on Wednesday May 23, 2012 from 8:30AM – 10:30AM, at our main office in Utica (502 Court Street, Suite 401); to promote understanding of mental health issues and the resources available to improve our communities’
health and well-being.
