Mental Health Awareness Walk & Fair
This May, in celebration of Mental Health Month, Mental Health Connecticut (MHC) is highlighting the journey young adults take toward achieving a healthier self. To kick the month off, we are teaming up with Rachel Prior, a student at Goodwin College, to present our first ever Mental Health Awareness Walk & Fair!
