Regional Federal Partners host webinar series on mental health

Region VIII Federal Partners are hosting "Improving the Mental and Emotional Well-Being of Communities through the National Prevention Strategy," a series of webinars based on the National Prevention Strategy. Each webinar in this series highlights ways Federal agencies are working with communities to increase the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life – physically and mentally - by shifting the nation from a focus on sickness and disease to one based on prevention and wellness.

The target audience for the series is staff from Federal, State, and local governments; Tribal nations and communities; community based-organizations; academia; advocacy groups; and faith-based organizations. All webinars are on Thursdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. MT
