Hanover Township Mental Health Board to hold April 8 Resource Fair

The Hanover Township Mental Health Board will hold a free Mental Health Resource Fair on Monday, April 8, at the Township Senior Center, 240 S. Route 59, Bartlett. From 2 to 4 p.m., residents are invited to attend to connect to a variety of resources available within the community. The event is also ideal for local social workers and health professionals.

“The Mental Health Board is committed to not only funding agencies that serve the township community, but also promoting the services they offer that are often free, or at a low cost,” said Kathy Biesiadecki, board chair. “Whether it be substance abuse counseling, financial literacy advising, programs for seniors or youth outreach services, attendees will be able to meet with staff to learn how to connect to these resources for themselves or for family members.”

Participating agencies include Consumer Credit Counseling Services, Elderday, Northwest Center Against Sexual Assault, The Bridge, Greater Family Health Center, Shelter Inc., WINGS, Maryville, and the Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois.

Hanover Township serves over 100,000 residents in portions of the Cook County communities of Streamwood, Elgin, Bartlett, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg.
