A series of free presentations addressing mental health issues at home and in the workplace will be offered Sunday, October 6 through Thursday, October 10, in the large meeting room of the Beatley Central Library, 5005 Duke St., Alexandria, 22304.

The series begins with a discussion, “Community Conversation: Creating Partnerships to Support Recovery.”  Other topics to be covered are “Recognizing and Addressing Mental Health Concerns in the Workplace”; “An Interactive Workshop: Youth Mental Illness and Risky Behavior”; “Helping Older Adults Stay Mentally Strong and Resilient”; “Teaching Pre-School Children Confidence and Resilience”; a special book and author presentation; and a screening of the documentary film, “Bully.”
