#JamesDonaldson on #MentalHealth – Learn About #MentalHealthIssues

We are living in perilous times in Natchez and Adams County.

High unemployment and tough economic times have perhaps contributed to some #mentalhealthissues, including #depression, drug addiction and #suicide in a percentage of the population.

Fortunately organizations are here to help people who may be struggling with #mentalhealthissues or people who know or live with people who may be struggling with #mentalhealthissues.

The #NationalAllianceonMentalIllness Four Rivers Chapter is sponsoring a #Suicide Awareness Forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Natchez Community Center, 215 Franklin St.

Despite the name of the event, #suicide will not be the only #mentalhealth topic on the agenda.

Other #mentalhealthissues on the agenda include #depression, bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia.

The discussion also will include what to look for in warning signs and how to get help for people who may be suffering from #mentalhealthissues.

#JamesDonaldson notes:

Welcome to the “next chapter” of my life… being a voice and an advocate for #mentalhealthawarenessandsuicideprevention, especially pertaining to our younger generation of students and student-athletes.

Getting men to speak up and reach out for help and assistance is one of my passions. Us men need to not suffer in silence or drown our sorrows in alcohol, hang out at bars and strip joints, or get involved with drug use.

Having gone through a recent bout of #depression and #suicidalthoughts myself, I realize now, that I can make a huge difference in the lives of so many by sharing my story, and by sharing various resources I come across as I work in this space.  #http://bit.ly/JamesMentalHealthArticle

Information will be available at the event too on local support groups for #suicide survivors and family support groups as well as other helpful brochures and information on a variety of #mentalhealth topics.

If you or someone you know are experiencing #mentalhealthissues, consider attending Thursday night’s forum.

It could be a matter of life and death.
