Mental health open house

MASON CITY, Iowa – Mental health is an issue that affects many in our country and it’s all the more reason to find out what resources are available to you.

Mental health specialists in Mason City helped to organize an open-house today for residents to meet with other counselors and therapists.

The meet and greet helps direct people toward what they need.

Organizers say it’s a great opportunity to help a number of people with a variety of connections.

“People don’t know where to go or what’s available to them. How to get funding and having an opportunity like this where all the different vendors and providers come together helps us know among ourselves, as well as the individuals needing the services how things are changing,” said Chris Seger of the Mental Health Center North Iowa.

Or you can call 1-800-447-1985 for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service to help Iowa families in need of assistance of any kind.

“Just to come down and talk to people is a great opportunity. To see what each agency has to offer, and the different programs and the requirements for the mall. We can tell you about them and explain them to you, but it’s good for hands-on to get your face out there and to know some of the faces,” said Katrina Guhl, Family Support Specialist.
