Andersson and Moeller to Host On The Table Discussion

State Representatives Steve Andersson (R-Geneva) and Anna Moeller (D-Elgin) are hosting a discussion on mental health at the Gail Borden Library in Elgin.

The roundtable event will be on September 18th from 10:00-11:00 am. It is free and open to the public.

The Representatives’ event is part of the On The Table Discussion series, which has been held around the State by various lawmakers interested in addressing mental health issues. The discussions are meant to foster conversation about mental health and addiction, to help lessen the stigma that surrounds it.

Representative Andersson has been a strong proponent of mental health, and feels this discussion group is a great way to make progress in mental health awareness.

“There is an unfair stigma surrounding mental health, and because of that, it often isn’t talked about,” said Andersson. “To make progress in the area of mental health, we first must break the stigma, so we can move forward to finding solutions. I hope this discussion series helps break that barrier, so we can help those that need it in our community—and in Illinois.”

Representatives Andersson and Moeller encourage anyone in their Districts to come join the discussion, to listen, learn, and share their input on mental health.

With questions about the event, contact Rep. Andersson’s District Office at (630) 457-5460.
