CHICAGO – State Rep. Lindsey LaPointe, D-Chicago, is teaming up with area providers and local state legislators for a Northwest Side Mental Health Resource Fair scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 8 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Copernicus Center. Consisting of both resource tables and five 20-minute info-sessions, the event accommodates drop-in participants.

“The past few years have strained the mental health of both kids and adults, while at the same time, conversations have opened up and stigma has decreased,” LaPointe said. “On the Northwest side, needs range from everyday wellness to grief support, from quality ongoing therapy to psychiatric support. It’s critically important to know the local and citywide resources – and gaps – for our own mental health and for our community at large.”

The resource fair will include informational tables from local organizations, as well as 20-minute info sessions on how to approach mental health issues and maintain healthy practices. Residents with questions may contact for more information.

Who: Expected organizations include Envision Unlimited, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, NAMI Chicago, Chicago Park District, Galter LifeCenter, the Kedzie Center, YMCA, Swedish Hospital, Trilogy Mental Wellbeing, &Rise, Meditation Center of Chicago, CTS Health, Healthcare Alternative Systems, and Pace Bus.

Sponsoring local officials include state Rep. Lindsey LaPointe, state Sen. Rob Martwick, state Rep. Brad Stephens, state Rep. Jaime Andrade, state Rep. Will Guzzardi, state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, state Rep. Mike Kelly, state Rep. Eva Dina-Delgado, state Sen. Cristina Pacione-Zayas and state Sen. Ram Villivalam.
