Behavioral health resource event to be held Friday
Minot’s “It Takes a Village” community behavioral health resource event will be held Friday from 3-7 p.m. at Roosevelt Park, 1215 E. Burdick Expressway, at Shelter No. 2 and band shell area. The event aims to raise awareness about available behavioral health resources in the Minot region.
There will be more than 25 booths featuring public and private behavioral health providers and professionals, where attendees can ask questions and learn more about services that could benefit them or a loved one.
The North Dakota Department of Human Services’ Behavioral Health Division will be on hand to share information about Parents Lead and statewide recovery support services, including the Substance Use Disorder Voucher, Free Through Recovery, Community Connect and other resources. First District Health Unit will provide training on how to administer naloxone and will distribute it for opioid overdose prevention.
North Central Human Service Center is a behavioral health clinic that serves people with serious and persistent mental illness and substance use disorders, including pregnant women and others who use intravenous drugs.
The event, free and open to everyone, will also have music, food and entertainment.
