CM James Co-Sponsors BK Bureau of Community Service "Conversations With Community Leaders" Discussion on Mental Health

New York City Council Member Letitia James on Why She Is a Co-Sponsor of the Brooklyn Bureau of Community Service event- Conversations with Community Leaders:

"Conversations with Community Leaders is necessary and extremely important at this time. Now more than ever, especially during this country's worst economic crisis in decades, when incidents of violence and abuse have a greater potential to rise, it is imperative that the community have increased access to social services. Mental health services, in particular, help people at all income levels to cope with the drastic changes to their lives. It comforts me to know that the Brooklyn Bureau of Community Service continues to provide superb support and resources for the community, specifically for individuals with mental health challenges."
