Join us for MindFest on Saturday, October 20th from 11:00 am to 5 pm at the River Market in Little Rock to learn more about mental health. When you or someone you know is diagnosed with a mental illness, it’s often difficult to know where to start. How serious is it? Will it get better? Where can I find help?
The stigma surrounding mental health can even make it easier to do nothing. We don’t believe that anyone should needlessly suffer because of their mental health and we want to help give you access to any and all of the many resources available in Central Arkansas.
Even if you don’t feel that you’re affected by mental illness, come out and learn how you can improve your mental health!
There will be a mental health fair with vendors from all areas of mental health- from treatment providers, social workers, and therapists, to local artists, mindfulness groups, and state-of-the-art research. We’ll also have fun activities and games for all ages, as well as prizes and giveaways, live music, and food trucks! Bring your friends and family and come help us celebrate mental health!
