BENEFITING: Minding Your Mind
EVENT DATE: Apr 06, 2014
For the past two years, Minding Your Mind has hosted a 5k Run/1 Mile walk to help raise awareness about mental health issues affecting young adults. We believe that exercise is a fun and enjoyable activity that can boost self-esteem, reduce stress and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
Minding Your Mind leads initiatives that reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues among adolescents in middle school, high school and college. Our outreach programs enlighten students, families and educators about the warning signs of mental health issues that are so often masked by adolescent behavior. By promoting open dialogue at school and at home, these programs encourage young adults and families to seek the appropriate help.
