SAN ANTONIO – World Mental Health Day is observed annually on October 10. Bexar County has joined in the effort to bring awareness and resources to community in light of this day.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness-San Antonio provides education and support programs in the San Antonio area. The NAMI website includes opportunities for membership, volunteering, and crisis hotlines.

NAMI held an event for the public at the Center for Health Care Services Wednesday afternoon where they encouraged people to wear green and served light refreshments.

Bexar County also has a Department of Behavioral and Mental Health that advocates for community health issues and programs.
