Health & Mental Health - Fontana Regional Library Long Range Plan
Libraries throughout Fontana had displays to promote Mental Health Awareness Week during October. These were done in partnership with the local chapter of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Health), NAMI Appalachian South. Displays combined resources such as informational pamphlets from NAMI and local mental health providers, with items from our collection, such as books, DVDs, and audiobooks. The goals of this display were to provide a greater understanding of the range of symptoms and treatment possibilities for specific mental illnesses and addictions, and to make patrons aware of local resources for treatment, evaluation and support.
