Did you know 1 in 4 people experience a mental health challenge, but fewer than half are getting the help they need? One of the main reasons for this is due to the large amounts of stigma towards mental health. 

At this FREE event, learn about mental wellness and how to stop stigma in your community. Learn about all the mental health resources available in your community to understand that help is available. 

Enjoy FREE food, dance performances from local dance groups, poetry slams, short film screenings, wellness crafts, and more!
