How and When to Refer: Mental Health Crises

Wednesday February 20, 12:00-2:00 pm
Indiana Interchurch Center, Krannert Hall
1100 W. 42nd St. Indianapolis

The Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health presents our second event of the Spring 2019 Series: How Faith Communities Become Resources.

How and When to Refer: Mental Health Crises. Dr. Arman Siddiqui (a psychiatrist who works at the Adult and Mental Health Center and Community Hospital North) will be interviewed by Sabrena Suggs (Mental Health Educator and Advocate with Give an Hour Indiana) about mental health crises, avenues of referral, and resources in the Indianapolis area. After their interview, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions of both professionals and ICMH steering committee members.

We now ask for an admission fee of $5. Because we have often reached our RSVP capacity, ICMH makes this change to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend. We will accept walk-ins.

Each Interfaith Coalition for Mental Health luncheon concentrates on a specific mental health practice or accessible tool individuals can use in their congregations. Together, the luncheons outline a “core curriculum” of how best to address basic, ubiquitous mental health needs of faith communities. The curriculum is designed so that individuals who attend every luncheon will be generally equipped and knowledgeable about mental health community resources.
