2nd , We at LaPaz Community Mental Health Center also located in the downtown area.  (530 San Pedro Ave.) will be having our own balloon release for both our morning and late afternoon clients.  We’ll have cake and punch and balloons will be released at 12:45 am and 2:00 pm and you’re invited too.  😉

Please join us on Friday and wear a green ribbon on both the 9th and the 10th., as it helps bring more attention to this worldwide campaign. Our mission is to get people to spark up a conversation by feeling comfortable speaking about mental health issues.

The color green stands for emotional, behavioral and mental health. The green ribbon symbolizes growth, supports healing and hope, giving the body a positive physiological and psychological effect with tranquility.

*If anything it helps start a conversation about this mental health and that alone is success. Wearing the green ribbons really does help as 75% of people feel more comfortable in starting a conversation about mental health, which is up by 71% from last year.

Help us get rid of the silence around mental health by wearing the green ribbon.

Support really does go a long way.
