Minority Mental Health Fair
Providing the Community with Resources
The goal of a minority mental health fair is to reduce stigma around mental health in minority communities and promote access to resources and support for those who may be struggling. It provides a safe and welcoming space for individuals to connect with others who share similar experiences and challenges. The fair will provide information about local community resources, such as support groups and counseling services. The fair will also host seminars on topics such as stress management, depression, anxiety, trauma, and coping strategies.
Mindful Memoirs: A Community Discussion
Mindful Memoirs is a monthly opportunity for individuals in the community to come together and have open and respectful conversations about mental health. By not having set topics, the conversation can be more organic and based on the interests and concerns of the participants. The Mind Field, Inc. facilitates the conversation to ensure that the conversation remains respectful and productive. We value creating a safe and supportive environment where individuals can feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and experiences without fear of judgment or stigma.
