Nov. 7, 2019—The CFISD guidance and counseling and psychological services departments are sponsoring the Community Mental Health Resource Fair, to be held on Dec. 3 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at the Berry Center (8877 Barker Cypress Road). District parents, staff and community members will have the opportunity to meet the CFISD Mental Health Intervention Team and community mental health care providers, as well as learn of available resources and opportunities.
More than 70 mental health providers and vendors are scheduled to attend the fair, including a massage therapist to help promote self-care. Numerous door prizes will be available for fair patrons to win, while vendors and events booths will have gifts and other giveaways.
“This is an awesome opportunity for our entire community to view many of our mental health providers under one roof,” said Franklin Sampson, director of guidance and counseling. “It’s very rare to have an event solely focused on providing individual information from multiple therapists and facilities. We are taking the guess work out of it. We are giving everyone the privilege of meeting with mental health providers. The event is totally free and we encourage all to attend. Let’s continue to tackle the stigma associated with mental health concerns.”
