Fairfax County Hosts Black Mental Health Discussion for Mental Health Awareness Month

Join us for “Tools 2 Thrive,” a virtual community discussion about mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health within the black community that is being held in coordination with Mental Health Awareness Month. Taking place on Thursday, May 27, 2021 from 6-7:30 p.m. on Zoom, this session will address what individuals can do throughout their daily lives to prioritize mental health, build resiliency, and continue to cope with the obstacles of COVID-19. Specifically, we’ll discuss how to adapt to trauma and stress, process big changes, and take time for yourself.

All are invited to attend; register at bit.ly/Tools2Thrive .
