PROVO — Mental health challenges can affect anyone at any age, especially when the world seems to be in a state of constant crisis and change.

That’s why Intermountain Healthcare is hosting the 2020 Virtual Mental Health Services Awareness Night on Thursday.

The virtual event, which begins at 7 p.m., is open to anyone in Utah who wants to understand how to help those with mental health challenges. Those who want to participate in the free live-streamed meeting can register at utahvalleyhospital.org/mentalhealthnight. Those who register will receive an email with a link to the event.

Speakers will include Utah Valley University President Astrid Tuminez and Greg Hudnall, executive director and founder of Hope4Utah and Hope Squad.

Participants will also learn how to utilize United Way’s 211 information line as a “one-stop shop” for resources and be able to access links to national, state, and local resources.

“We know people going through a mental health challenge often turn to family, friends or trusted leaders to find help. We want more people to understand what resources are available so they can offer that assistance when its needed,” Kyle Hansen, Utah Valley Hospital administrator, said in a statement.
