The DeSaulnier Digest: Upcoming Town Hall and Veterans Resource Fair
Dear Mr. Merge:
Millions of Americans live every day with anxiety, depression, and other behavioral health conditions. Unfortunately, society too often fails to talk openly about or treat these conditions with the seriousness they deserve. As the pandemic and the Olympics have shone a spotlight on mental health, join us for an open, honest discussion with experts who will provide information and resources.
On Tuesday, August 17th at 6:00 p.m. PT, I will be joined by experts in the field for a Zoom town hall. RSVP by clicking here or on the image below before 3:00 p.m. PT on August 17th and you will receive the Zoom link to join prior to the event.
