Description:
Spring Into Mental Health 2009 and 2010 was a free 2-day community event that provided up-to-date mental health information and education. Spring into Mental Health is organized and provided by the Department of Human Service, Quentin N. Burdick Memorial HealthCare Facility. This annual event is scheduled in May in conjunction with National Mental Health month. This 2-day event focuses on providing educational information, interactive participation, and personal healing to both professionals and general community members.
