Published: Saturday, May 4, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

ST. CHARLES – The Summit 303 session set for Thursday will focus on mental health support that currently exists in the community, according to a news release from St. Charles School District 303.

Participants will be asked to “think big” about what additional services could and should be available.

“We want people to really stretch their thinking about what we, as a community, could provide if there were no limitations,” Summit 303 co-Chair Jim Di Ciaula said in the release.

Co-Chair Mary Pat Ryan acknowledged there are limitations.

“We will also discuss what those limitations look like, but this meeting of Summit 303 offers an outlet for our community’s most creative and informed thinking on mental health supports and services,” she said in the release.

The meeting is set for 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday in the Little Theatre at St. Charles East High School, 1020 Dunham Road, St. Charles.

All community members are invited.

Participants will use data and opinions compiled from their discussions to develop community recommendations.

District 303 is joined and supported in this effort by the St. Charles Education Association, city of St. Charles, St. Charles Police Department, St. Charles Public Library, several faith-based community organizations and mental health and wellness organizations in the Tri-Cities.
