NUHW partakes in Mental Health Matters Day

June 29th, 2018

NUHW once again co-sponsored Mental Health Matters Day in Sacramento. The one-day event, organized by Mental Health America of California, brings together advocates for improving mental health care and ending stigma.

This year’s keynote speaker was Darryl “DMC” McDaniels from the seminal hip hop group Run-DMC.

Several of our Kaiser mental health clinicians ran our booth on the Capitol Mall.

“I thought the event was a great opportunity to work with other groups to reduce stigma with mental health issues,” said Ken Rogers, a psychologist at Kaiser South Sacramento “I was impressed that there were so many other groups that are working locally on mental health. I knew of a few that Kaiser Permanente contracts with but there were several I haven’t heard of.”
