Men's Health

It can’t be kept a secret any longer. One in six adults in this country suffer from a mental health condition, but many are too embarrassed to admit they have a problem. To combat this trend, Atlantic Health System participates in the No More Whispers program, which is designed to motivate people to openly discuss feelings of depression and other emotional challenges. Our next community outreach event – the Festival of Hope – will feature guest speaker Kevin Hines, who himself survived a suicide attempt from the Golden Gate Bridge and is now traveling the country, sharing his unique perspective on mental health awareness. It will be held on Saturday, September 15 from 9:00am to Noon at Chilton Medical Center. Learn more or email nomorewhispers@atlantichealth.org to register.
