Northeast and Eastside Explorers

Eastside Explorers joined Northeast Explorers at the Northeast Denver Harbor Multi-Service Center for their weekly training recently.  Mrs. Claire Shynett, a retired psychologist with MHMRA, was invited to speak on Mental Health in the  African American and the Latino Community. As we approach Mental Health Month, it was good for the explorers to discuss some of the common warning signs of mental health. One of the main facts the explorers learned from this presentation is, mental illness is no different from any other health issue such as, diabetes, cancer, or Alzheimer's in that all illnesses can get worse without the proper care and treatment.
