Family Matters Hosts Health 360 Degrees


In honor of Mental Health Awareness, Family Matters of Greater Washington is hosting two evenings of all things health related. Less than half of adult Americans with mental illness receive treatment. Family Matters’ events are an outlet for community members to receive the help they need, or just learn more about the importance of health.

Family Matters will be hosting Health 360 Degrees in both Washington D.C and Maryland to ensure all community members have access to health services. The free events will take place on July 12th at 6196 Oxon Hill Road, MD. in Suite 340 and July 13th at 1301 Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington D.C. Both events will be hosted from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The entire community is invited to attend the events that will include wellness activities, mental health screenings, networking, refreshments, music and giveaways.

Since their inception in 1943, Family Matters’ Mental and Behavioral Health unit has improved the access and quality of care for area residents who are struggling with mental illness with clinics in Maryland and Washington, DC. Most individuals suffering from mental illness suffer in silence. Family Matters wants to put an end to the silence.

With more than 75 program directors, clinical managers, therapists and intake coordinators on staff, Family Matters of Greater Washington’s Mental and Behavioral Health team works tirelessly to treat and save the lives of D.C. and Maryland area residents battling mental illness. As a D.C. Department of Behavioral Health Core Services Agency, Family Matters provides impact-driven, compassionate care solutions.
