GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - Prisma Health is teaming up with the Greenville Well-Being Partnership for a forum to educate clinicians, employers and people in the community about mental health issues.

Speakers participating in the forum include experts with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the National Center for Performance Health, and Prisma Health doctors.

They are expected to discuss topics about mental health across the lifespan, ranging from help for children to Alzheimer’s and palliative care.

“Behavioral health issues are a community challenge that requires community cooperation and innovation,” said Karen Lommel, DO and chair of psychiatry for Prisma Health Upstate. “We are excited to offer this learning opportunity for our community and local care professionals. By all of us coming together, we can increase awareness and where to turn to for help.”
