FORT WAYNE—On Wednesday, August 28, YWCA Northeast Indiana will be hosting a discussion about mental health as it specifically relates to youth.

This discussion will be led by author and advocate Larry Hayes. Mr. Hayes served as an editorial page editor at The Journal Gazette for more than 25 years and helped to create the Institute for Behavior Studies at IPFW, the Suicide Prevention Council of Allen County, and the Carriage House mental health rehabilitation center. He is the author of two published books, Monday I’ll Save the World and Mental Illness and Your Town.

Come explore this topic with us in this installment of the Diversity Dialogue series on Wednesday, August 28, from noon to 1:30 pm at YWCA Northeast Indiana’s 1610 Spy Run Avenue office. This and all Diversity Dialogues are free and open to the public. Free parking is available.

To join us, please RSVP on our YWCA Northeast Indiana Facebook page, or contact Administrative Coordinator Sue Hiatt at SHiatt@ywcaerew.org or (260) 424-4908 ext.254.

The titles for the remainder of the 2013 Diversity Dialogue series are as follows:

There will be no Diversity Dialogues taking place in November or December.
