Mental Health Awareness Day

Community Connections took part in celebrating and educating the community during Mental Health Awareness Month. Different members of our staff sat outside of 801 Pennsylvania Ave and encouraged people to spin our wheel of awareness and learn more about different things that can affect a persons overall mental health such as stress, anxiety and healthy living. Participants spun the wheel, received information and walked away with candy. Community Connections handed out green ribbons for people to wear to raise awareness for mental health.  Over 100 people were seen and wore their green ribbons proud. The ultimate goal during Mental Health Awareness Month is to break the stigma that surrounds mental health. We can do this together by educating one person at a time.
