This month’s speaker is Maria Salas, Mental Health Coordinator at San Pedro Mental Health Center. Maria will speak about the programs and services available at the San Pedro Mental Health Center (150 W 7th St., San Pedro), and the other centers in the South Bay.
San Pedro Mental Health Services offers outpatient or partial hospitalization care for patients ages 18 and over. Their areas of expertise include adults with serious mental illness, persons with mental and substance abuse disorders, persons with post-traumatic stress disorder, veterans, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender clients, and forensic clients. When looking for a mental health center consider what treatment and patient types they focus on and choose one that best fits your needs.
This month’s meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the First Lutheran Church in Torrance on Monday, January 27th. Beginning at 6:00 p.m., before the meeting, will be the Caring & Sharing support group.
Please note that this meeting will not be on the usual third Monday (January 20) of the month, because January 20 is Martin Luther King Day. Instead, the meeting is on the fourth Monday, January 27,2014. (The February meeting will also be on the fourth Monday because of Presidents Day/Washington’s Birthday.)
