At FASGI, we understand that mental health means more than dealing with mental illness. In our everyday lives, things may happen that could cause angst, frustration, anxiety, confusion, conflict, and a host of other issues that could affect our mental well-being. Some of these may be caused or propagated by cultural issues that have become deeply rooted in a person’s psyche. We are here to help you. We have developed, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, a variety of activities (classes, workshops, seminars, etc.), as well as outreach, referral and advocacy, to identify, understand, and address the issues of behavioral instabilities. Do not hesitate to call us if you think that you or someone you know needs help.

StanD – FASGI collaborates with Colleagues Communications/Christopher Aguilar in presenting a play written by playwright Christopher Aguilar based on his own experience with bipolar disorder. The play is about lead character Stan De la Cruz and his battle with bipolar disorder. Stan gets hospitalized twice and his family finds ways to cope and help him through. After growing up with medications, Stan learns how to navigate his adult life and realizes the importance of family. The presentation of the play is followed by a discussion held by a mental health professional to provide education and awareness on mental health issues. FASGI staff are always present during the presentation of the play, ready to provide any assistance that may be needed by individuals in the audience. We are able to present the play anywhere within Los Angeles County for groups of 12 or more. Call us at 213-908-5050 if you are interested in having us bring the play to you.
