STRIKE OUT STIGMA BASEBALL NIGHT – MAY 15TH

14:41 14 May in Press Release

Montgomery Ala.–  The Alabama Department of Mental Health, community partners and the Montgomery Biscuits are hosting Strike Out Stigma Night to offer valuable information and resources on mental illness and substance use disorders. Join us Wednesday, May 15th for the 6:35 p.m. game!

Mental illness touches hundreds of thousands of families in America, with at least one family member diagnosed during their lifetime. Navigating life with a mental health condition can be tough, and the isolation, blame and secrecy, that is often encouraged by stigma, can create huge challenges to reaching out, getting needed support and living well.

Conversations about mental health and where to find help for oneself or for family and friends is vital. Community partners at the event will offer information on services and opportunities for those in need and their families:

  • NAMI Alabama
  • Wings Across Alabama
  • Bradford Health Services
  • Montgomery Mental Health Authority
  • Council on Substance Abuse
  • Samaritan Counseling Center
  • Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System
  • New Season-Montgomery Metro Treatment Center
  • Chemical Addictions Program
