East End Mental Health Awareness Initiative:

Annually the Towns of Southampton and East Hampton collaborated to bring residents the East End Mental Health Awareness Day. After 14 years however this group decided to change it up. Rather than offer only one day they have organized several FREE events that will be presented across the area. Two upcoming events are:

Wednesday, April 26, 7 pm,

Mental Health Treatment: Then, Now and Going Forward. Southampton Town Community Center, 25 Ponquogue Ave, Hampton Bays. Free

Our three speakers will present the continuum of mental health treatment with discussion to follow:


Lucy Winer, a former Kings Park patient who created the documentary, Kings Park: Stories From an American Institution, will reference her film as she candidly discusses the experiences of patients and staff in this former Long Island psychiatric hospital.

Katherine Tollefsen, Program Coordinator for the Recovery Center East, who has been both a recipient and provider of mental health services, will discuss new initiatives to engage individuals in their recovery.

Kristie Golden, PhD, Associate Director of Operations for the Neurosciences Service Line at Stony Brook’s Dept. of Psychiatry, will explain the developing models of care that will integrate mental health services into primary care settings and address the person as a whole not just a mental illness - Integrated Behavioral Health Services.


Saturday, May 6, 3 pm Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton 


From Ship to Shape, a monologue on mental health with Walker Vreeland. A young actor gets a job on a cruise ship and winds up in a mental hospital. FROM SHIP TO SHAPE is a tragicomic autobiographical monologue about losing your mind while chasing your dreams, and how a cruise ship can push you over the edge.
