RESOLUTION NO. 9251

PROCLAMATION

IN SUPPORT OF MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK

WHEREAS, A new perception of mental illness is emerging one that focuses on early intervention, effective treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. No area of health care is changing more than mental health. Advances are prompted by better science, more research, the important role consumers play in advocating for themselves, and family members who speak out for their loved ones.

WHEREAS, Barriers to mental illness recovery are falling one by one. More than thirty states have adopted measures to ensure health insurance parity.

WHEREAS, Treatment works if a person with mental illness can get it. Science has greatly expanded our understanding and treatment of severe mental illness. Once forgotten, these individuals now have a real chance at reclaiming full and productive lives, but only if they have access to the treatments, services and programs so vital to recovery.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that Woodbury County does hereby proclaim

OCTOBER 1-7, 2000
AS
MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK

In Woodbury County, Iowa. The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors call upon all citizens, government agencies, public and private institutions, businesses and schools in Woodbury County, Iowa to recommit our County to increase awareness and understanding of mental illnesses and the need for appropriate and accessible services for all people diagnosed with a mental illness.

SO RESOLVED THIS 3rd day of October 2000.
