GENERAL MEETING - RSVP & GET ZOOM LINK

Join NAMI Long Beach Area at Our Upcoming General Meeting.

 

When: Wednesday Apr 7, 2021 7:00pm

Topic: What To Do After a Mental Health Hospitalization: A Guide for Discharge and Aftercare Planning

 

When we are hospitalized in a mental health facility, there are a lot of unknowns. We might not understand our treatment plan, discharge plan or aftercare plan. Understanding these three components can help us in our recovery. Knowing what questions to ask the treatment team will help us get the treatment we need during and after hospitalization. This will help us plan and prepare to return to live in the community and continue our journey to recovery.

Speaker: Rosy Tellez, Peer Self-Advocacy Coordinator, Disability Rights California (DRC)
