On Saturday, April 27, at 2 PM, the Collin County Diversity Council, in partnership with the Friends of the Allen Public Library, will present a forum on mental health in the Allen library’s Civic Auditorium.

There will be a panel of speakers on a variety of mental health concerns, including Dr. Laura Bradley, OB/GYN, speaking on mental health issues during and following pregnancy; Elise Thompson, Family and Child Psychologist; and Ruth Josenhans, director of PLAN Clubhouse (an acronym for People Living Active Now --  a place where people with mental illnesses such a schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or severe depression, can come to learn how to deal with their illnesses and succeed in their daily lives). Q&A will follow.

Before and after the panel, groups that support various kinds of special needs will be in the lobby of the auditorium to answer questions and share information.
