Mental Health America of Fort Bend County publishes new edition of its Behavioral Health Resource Guide, “Providing Light, Giving Hope”.  The guides are now available for distribution throughout the county.

Fort Bend County now has a valuable tool to help link those in need of mental health resources with the health care professionals and programs that can provide much needed help.

“We are pleased to announce that our resource guide is available for those families who are suffering with mental health issues.  It is important to know that there are resources in the community where you can go for help,” said Dave Armstrong, Chairman of the Board of Directors for MHAFBC.

MHAFBC distributes 7,000 resource guides annually to hospitals, schools, faith-based groups, and senior centers.  Individuals and families can also receive a copy of the guide by contacting the MHAFBC office at 281-207-2480.

The mission of Mental Health America of Fort Bend County is to promote mental wellness, eliminate mental health inequalities, and improve quality of life.  The organization is committed to providing advocacy to remove the barriers to quality mental health care for those battling a mental illness. “Providing light, giving hope” is an important step towards that goal.
