The African American Family Outreach Project will present its third free workshop of 2019 with the focus on understanding serious mental illness, substance abuse disorders and the Alameda County services available to meet the needs of individuals.
Dr. Aaron Chapman, the head psychiatrist with Alameda County Behavioral Health and Rev. Kenneth Love, a certified substance abuse counselor, who has worked with addicted individuals in Oakland and Santa Clara County, will both speak and engage the audience in question-and-answer sessions.
Small discussion groups will also be set up to allow family members to learn more about such topics as Alameda County Crisis Services.
The FREE workshop will be held on June 22, 2019, from 9:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the Charles Porter Golden Gate Recreation Center, 1015 62nd St. in Oakland.
