April Meeting: Navigating the Department of Mental Health System

NAMI South Bay Monthly Meeting (Virtual)
7:30 PM
Monday, April 18, 2022
Presenter: Jennifer Nguyen, PsyD, LMFT, MA

Dr. Jennifer Nguyen, will be speaking about Navigating the Department of Mental Health System. Dr. Nguyen is the adult navigator for Service Area 8 of the Los Angeles County which includes the South Bay. She will provide information on the navigator system in the Department of Mental Health, how to navigate, and how to learn about resources available.

Navigators seek to engage with people and families to identify resources, including support and services tailored to the particular cultural, ethnic, age and gender identity of those persons seeking help. Dr. Nguyen will address information about other age groups such as elderly adults, transitional-age youth, and children. We will also learn how families and persons with a mental illness can work with the system and become advocates for themselves and for loved ones.

The meeting will be virtual. Please contact Nami South Bay President, Paul Stansbury (pstans5@aol.com) for remote access information.
