May is Mental Health Awareness Month and The Guidance Center will be "Shaking off Stigma" with the NAMI Fort Smith Chapter. On Saturday, May 14, NAMI will sponsor a Zumbathon and Healthfair from 12Noon-4pm for a fun event to educate the community about mental health conditions and treatment services available throughout the River Valley.
Mental illness is a condition that impacts a person's thinking, feeling or mood and may affect his or her ability to relate to others and function. Recovery, including meaningful roles in social life, school and work, is possible, especially when treatment begins early and individuals play a strong role in the recovery process.
The Guidance Center offers treatment for persons with mental and substance use disorders. For over 44 years, we have offered a wide-array of services for children, adolescents and adults throughout western Arkansas.
