|The 5K "National Alliance For The Mentally Ill" Walk to "bust stigma"|
supports in part, EvergreenHealth's goal to build an outpatient mental health clinic
When voting on EvergreenHealth's Prop. 1 measure you may not be aware of a hidden gem in this bond. Our elected officials (commissioners) decided to build an outpatient mental health clinic if we pass the bond!
The need is definitely there. According to the "National Institute of Mental Health":
So please know Prop. 1 is more than seismically retrofitting Evergreen's oldest buildings and upgrading the 1985 Critical Care Unit. It's also about "the forgotten people" -- our mentally challenged residents and their families crying for care.
Please vote "Yes" on Proposition 1.
