SAN ANTONIO - A mental health awareness meeting will be held Wednesday night for parents, teachers, coaches and other local leaders.

The event is called Community Conversation on Teen & Young Adult Mental Health.

It will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Oblate School of Theology at the Whitley Center, located at 285 Oblate Drive.

The meeting is part of a statewide effort to remove stigma of youth mental health and guide families to resources.

The focus will be on learning how to recognize the warning signs, what actions to take and what resources are available. 

An estimated 200 area residents are expected to participate in the conversation, which is open to the public without charge.  

This event is one of 16 conversations being held throughout the state this summer.
