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.
