Student Service Community Service--Mental Health and Wellness 5K Run Walk

Student Service or Community Service Project

Introduction
Mental health and wellness are reflected in one’s ability to have fulfilling relationships, successfully adapt to change, and coping with adversity. Mental health problems like depression, anxiety and family conflict keep us from mental wellness. Kenneth Young Center is here to serve you and your community to “help people feel good, do better, and find solutions.”
 

Let’s GET STARTED!

Goal:
To be able to speak comfortably about mental health and wellness and services that are available to help people find solutions and live better lives.

  • Go to the Kenneth Young Center (KYC) website and research:
