Wilton Social Services, Wilton Youth Services, and the Wilton Police Department together with Kids in Crisis and Positive Directions, will be hosting a discussion on mental health on Wednesday, Aug. 18, from 12-12:30 p.m. via Zoom.
According to discussion organizers, COVID-19 has taken a toll on everyone with depression, anxiety, and substance use increasing over the past year. The discussion will focus on how to recognize the signs that help is needed, demystify the process of seeking help, and share local resources.
“The Town of Wilton’s Social Services Department is happy to help any resident in need, and this includes mental health,” Sarah Heath, the director of Wilton Social Services, said. “It can be confusing to navigate and we have professionals ready and willing to help you. We hope anyone interested in learning how to access help will attend, whether you are interested in helping yourself or a loved one.”
