Sarpy County Public Defender Promotes Mental Health Awareness

The Mental Health Awareness Expo, organized by the Sarpy County Public Defender’s Office is a free event where people can get their questions answered and get in touch with mental health resources. In 2018, 22 exhibitors provided useful information to attendees. In addition, 6 speakers discussed important topics such as:

  • How to Recognize the Signs of Mental Illness
  • Resources that Can Help
  • Managing and Coping with Mental Illness

Attendees were able to speak directly to the people who can provide help with services and system navigation. Support specialists were on hand to answer specific questions in a private setting.

The event was sponsored by UNMC.
