DETROIT (AP) - The impact of Detroit’s bankruptcy, a slowly recovering economy, crime and other stressors on the mental health of people living in and around the city will be discussed during a psychiatric leadership summit.

Farmington Hills-based Community Network Services is partnering with the American Psychiatric Association and others on Friday’s event at Marygrove College in Detroit. National health care professionals and U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow are among those scheduled to attend.

Detroit could exit the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history later this year, but the city’s unemployment and crime rates remain among the nation’s highest.

Community Network Services President Michael Garrett says the city’s troubles can impact “every aspect of people’s lives by creating stress at home and in the workplace.”

Garrett’s recovery-focused nonprofit provides behavioral health services.
