South Lake Tahoe, CA – Community members and visitors are invited to participate in a 31-day challenge to honor their own mental health and raise awareness about mental health issues.
The City of South Lake Tahoe and organizations on the South Shore are joining partners across the nation in declaring May as National Mental Health Awareness Month. Throughout the month, there will be community activities and events to encourage more conversations about mental health and to raise awareness about how mental health and wellbeing affect everyone.
Local events include:
Wednesday, May 11 (time TBD) at South Tahoe High School – 1735 Lake Tahoe Blvd, SLT
Friday, May 20 – 7pm at Lake Tahoe Community College – One College Ave, SLT
All events are free and open to the public. The 31-day challenge also features individual activities and suggestions for small groups. They range from paying it forward to a stranger on May 9 to mailing a friend a “just because” card on May 26.
The challenge’s full schedule can be found at bartonhealth.org/mentalhealthmonth. Participants can share their challenge activities on social media with #EachMindMatters.
This event is sponsored by Barton Health and Each Mind Matters, and is made possible by the community’s dedication to reducing the stigma around mental health.
