Mental well being matters. El bienestar mental importa.


Who We Are: Quienes Somos

A Distinct Identity: Una Identidad Distinta

Mental well being is a goal everyone can share. Our goal is to promote education on a variety of mental health issues that affect our community. We hope to reduce the stigma some people feel about mental health. We also plan to promote resources within the community as well as we identify gaps and barriers that exist for many people wanting to get help.

Everyone’s well being matters. If you are suffering from a mental illness, you are not alone!

El bienestar mental es un objetivo que todos pueden compartir. Nuestro objetivo es promover la educación en una variedad de problemas de salud mental que afectan a nuestra comunidad. Esperamos reducir el estigma que algunas personas sienten sobre la salud mental. También planeamos promover los recursos disponibles en la comunidad, así como identificar los obstáculos y barreras que existen para muchas personas que desean obtener ayuda.

El bienestar de todos es importante. Si padece un problema de salud mental, ¡no está solo!
