Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations airing statewide each Friday at 5:30. Each week Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization or event in the community that offers assistance to the disabled and other folks in need. This week All Things Considered host Dave Lawrence is  joined by the Psychosocial Rehabilitation/Case Management Service Coordinator at the Hawai`i Adult Mental Health Division of the Department of Health - our special guest today here at our HPR Studios, Kathleen Merriam.

According to their website, the Hawai`i Adult Mental Health Division of the Department of Health provides a comprehensive, integrated mental health system supporting the recovery of adults with severe mental illness. Their vision is that everyone has access to effective treatment and support essential for living, working, learning and participating fully in the community.
