The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board's Wellness, Health Promotion & Prevention team focuses on ways to strengthen our community’s emotional health and ability to handle challenges related to mental health concerns and substance misuse.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Take time to understand mental health, recognize signs and symptoms and get someone professional help. Let’s reduce stigma and build resilience. Learn how you can raise awareness about the topic of mental health! We encourage the community to learn more about mental health and preventing suicide.
Community members can also download the myStrength app and explore a variety of wellness opportunities. Explore our calendar of suggestions and reach out to the prevention team for more information about the activities suggested.
