AFN’S 6TH MENTAL HEALTH EXPO,
“Journeys through Mental Health, Hold Hope
All who attended AFN’s Mental Health Expo on May 5 at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center had a successful and exciting time! Thank you to all participants for a great day!
Along with new vendors, entertainment was provided by the smooth jazz sounds of Coffe’s Love Trane.
AFN was pleased to have Hakeem Rahim, Ed.M., M.A., Mental Health Speaker, Trainer, Author and the Certified NAMI Queens/Nassau Presenter as the morning session’s Keynote Speaker presenting on “Let’s Talk Mental Illness™ (LTMI)”.
Our Plenary speaker was Patricia L. Valentine, Dept. of Human Services Executive Deputy Director for Integrated Program Services. Ms. Valentine has been an advocate for the Family Voice in Allegheny County. AFN surprised Ms. Valentine with a “This is Your Life” timeline that chronicled Ms. Valentine’s advocacy for “Family Voice” and her vision to make a family based organization, which resulted in Allegheny Family Network.
Ruth Fox, Executive Director of AFN, presented Mr. Valentine with the Pat Valentine Champion Award, which was created for those persons who display family advocacy in both their personal and professional lives.
Our afternoon session also included recognition of our AFN Support Groups. AFN Staff Facilitators were introduced and group members were recognized with a special AFN Support Group Participant ribbon.
We look forward to next year’s Expo and hope to see you there.
