NAMI-Yolo — a chapter of NAMI, the Nation’s Voice on Mental Illness — invites mental health consumers, family members, friends and concerned citizens to participate a community dialog on mental health.

A public forum, sponsored by the California Mental Health Planning Council, will run from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 10, at the Woodland United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 212 Second St. in Woodland.

The forum will take the place of NAMI’s traditional potluck program in September. Participation is free.

It will examine the many changes to the public mental health system and explore the successes and the challenges in this time of transition.

Participants will include Karen Larsen, mental health director for the, Yolo County Department of Health and Human Services; Bob Schelen, chair of the Yolo County Local Mental Health Board; and the Rev. Elizabeth Brick of Woodland United Methodist Church.
