Candlelight Vigil for Mental Illness Awareness Week

7 p.m. - Candlelight Vigil to show support for Mental Illness Awareness Week. We will meet in the front lobby of the hospital where light refreshments and candles will be provided. We will also provide information about different mental illnesses and where people can go for help. This event is not a fundraiser. It is just to show support and raise awareness of this serious issue that affects so many in our community. Too many people hide their conditions from family and friends because of the stigmas surrounding mental illness. Many times these patients are confused and afraid and don't know where to turn for help. Help is available!
