Holy Family is gearing up for the hospital’s third community mental health forum, taking place Thursday night from 5:30-8 p.m. on the Methuen campus, 70 East St., in the auditorium.

Staged in conjunction with City of Lawrence Mayor’s Health Task Force, Holy Family’s conference carries a theme of social connection.

Speakers for Thursday’s program include Kelly Petravicz from the early child office of Lawrence’s South Bay Community Services, Arbor Counseling’s Annette Cappuccio and community member Roxanne Noltemy, who plans to speak from the perspective of a patient who has overcome mental health issues.

The free event will also be translated into Spanish for those residents in need of an interpreter.
