CID joined BHRS on Thursday, May 1st at 225 37th Ave, San Mateo Room 100 for the STAND UP for MENTAL WELLNESS event.
Mental health is an essential component of overall health and well-being for everyone. As many as 1 in 4 people suffer from some sort of mental or stress-related issue, yet many people don’t receive the help they need.
This event included some videos from the fantastic Digital Storytelling series as well a special video from the county's Youth Commissioners.
