Mental Health Training

PADS volunteers learned some valuable information about mental health & the homeless during training last Saturday. John Moss from the GC Health Dept shared that within the general population there are at least 20% of people who suffer from mental health issues. Within the homeless population, it is difficult to pinpoint how much higher that percentage may be. There does not seem to be a clear assumption that can be made. Our PADS guests benefit from the services John Moss provides in our county. If a PADS volunteer sees that someone needs some professional help, they are immediately referred to him for services. Thank you John for your service to the homeless in our community!
