Disability/Mental Health Awareness Event 2015.

By: The Human Service Club (HUS) & The Expressions Club.

The month of April is Disability awareness month, therefore, on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 there will be a Disability/Mental Health Awareness meeting held in the Atrium Amphitheater, between 2:30pm – 4:30pm. While New York City College of Technology (NYCCT) students learn in about diverse disabilities, and mental illnesses which could affect anybody, NYCCT students should also be aware of the signs, the treatments, and especially how to embrace an individual surviving a mental illness or disability. Our goal is to enhance the knowledge of all students attending NYCCT to bring about awareness of the difference between mental health and disability, and the probability of mental health in America, statistics of such, as well as what to do in the early stages, such as; Primary, secondary, and tertiary preventive care. Our goal is to increase public awareness and understanding of disabilities and mental health, also a deeper understanding of the acceptable and respectable terminology which is would ensure full inclusion of all individuals into every community. This is an event which will benefit the entire NYCCT Population. Breaking down stigma, discrimination, and stereotypes is the primary goal for this event, and that is exactly what being a human service representative entails.

Speakers will be present, please arrive on time.
