In an interview by Al-Anon Family Groups this week with Danielle Fritze, Mental Health America (MHA) Director of Public Education, she explained how MHA is promoting the theme B4Stage4, which focuses on addressing mental health concerns early, rather than at “Stage 4” – when symptoms are more severe, and recovery is a longer process. Friends and family members of alcoholics are no strangers to the concerns over mental health conditions, and many find hope and support in Al-Anon.
