Additionally, one in five Americans will experience a mental illness in a given year.

During the most recent taping of his talk show style program Price Points, Newport News Mayor McKinley L. Price held a roundtable discussion with city and community leaders about mental health.

Andre Dorsey with the Newport News Fire Department; Quincy White, executive director of the Four Oaks Day Services and Training Center; and Daphne Cunningham, PhD, deputy executive director of the Hampton Newport News Community Services Board. The panel had a robust discussion on the increasing number of people diagnosed with mental health issues and shared how their respective organizations are working to offer the support people need. Each panelist stressed the importance of discussing mental health and coming together to collectively address community needs.
