Village Project’s Mental Health Education Series Resumes – Monterey Herald

0

From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, The Village Project will resume its monthly public forums on mental health and historically underserved communities.

This forum will focus on the impact of the pandemic on the mental health of the Latinx community and how that community can progress towards healing and recovery.

These forums are part of the Lucille Hralima Mental Health Education Series, named after the Village Project’s first licensure-seeking intern. Lucille Hralima was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as a teenager. She became a social worker for the Monterey County Social Services Department and has championed community mental health education to remove stigma and other barriers to treatment.

She was killed in a car crash in 2018, the same year the series began. The agency decided to name this series in his honor.

Forums for the next few months will focus on LGBTQ +, Indigenous / Indigenous, African American, and Asian / Pacific Islander communities. These forums are free and open to the public. They are in person and all pandemic protocols will be followed. Live streaming and live viewing on YouTube may be possible.

The forum will be held at 1069 Broadway Avenue, Seaside. For more information, call (831) 392-1500.
