Mental Health Month Open House and Grand Opening Celebration

During National Mental Health Awareness Month, each year in May the mental health community joins together to reaffirm our commitment to building a better understanding of mental illnesses, increasing access to treatment and spreading awareness about the importance of good mental health for everyone.

This year, David Lawrence Center is celebrating the many heroes who support mental health in our community with an open house and grand opening celebration. Facility tours of our beautiful new Children’s Outpatient Building, Genoa pharmacy and the new Healthcare Network of SW Florida medical office scheduled to open in May will be available.

Children, adults, families, referral sources and donors are all welcome to join in on this free, family fun event. This action packed, informative event is open to the public and includes opportunities to meet local mental health heroes in our community. Girl Scout troops are also welcome to join in on the fun and earn a mental health patch!
