Psychotherapist to address substance abuse and mental illness

Breaking down the connection between substance abuse and mental illness among teens and young adults, Frank Bartolomeo will offer insight and suggestions on the topic tonight, May 9, in Conference Room B at the Tully Health Center, 32 Strawberry Hill Court, Stamford at 7:30 p.m.

While the design of the country’s health and human service systems in addressing the needs of dual diagnosis youth is fragmented, Dr. Bartolomeo’s presentation addresses best practice recommendations for effective treatment.

With more than 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist, administrator, teacher and consultant focused on child and adolescent mental health, group therapy, and addiction and recovery, Dr. Bartolomeo is a frequent presenter at national conferences. Ample time for questions and answers will follow the presentation.

The event will be hosted by the Stamford/Greenwich affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The event is open to the public and free of charge. Call 203-388-1603 for more information.

NAMI is a national, grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with mental illness and their families. Visit the website at namisg.info for more details.
