“With one in five Americans living with a mental health condition, it is imperative that we bring awareness to these issues by talking openly with our friends, families, and neighbors about how and where they can find the support and services they need,” Sheriff Rob Streck said in a release.

Members of the Montgomery County DrugFree Coalition and Haven Behavioral Hospital will be at the event to give information on local resources and how to talk to loved ones about mental health, according to a release.
