A town hall event focusing on youth mental health will be held at the Kirkland Performance Center on Jan. 30 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The event aims to start a conversation between community leaders, parents, physicians, students, and teachers regarding the challenges youths face. It will examine responses that may lead to mental health breakdowns, substance abuse, and addiction, and bring up additional resources in the community.

A facilitated discussion between five panelists and facilitator Roberta Romero is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. A community dialogue will follow.

Doors open at 6 p.m., with a resource fair being held in the lobby. Refreshments and snacks will also be available for purchase.

There is no cost to attend. Donations of about $10, however, are encouraged.

Presented by: EvergreenHealth, Residence XII, and Kirkland Chamber of Commerce
