Islands of Wellness: Mental Health Family Activity Day

  • May 20, 2017
  • 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Baker College, 2800 Springport Rd, Jackson MI 49202

Join us for Islands of Wellness, a mental health family activity day, inspired by the story of Disney’s Inside Out and SAMHSA’s Eight Dimensions of Wellness!

Did you know? 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This event is a collaboration with LifeWays, Baker College of Jackson, and Jackson County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (JCSAPC) aka Most Teens Don't.

Activities and challenges throughout the day will teach you how to take care of your mental health and beat stress in a fun and interactive way! Families will have the opportunity to complete challenges based on SAMSHA’s 8 Dimensions of Wellness which boost mental health. Each attendee who completes a passport and participates in an activity at each of the 8 “Islands” will receive a T-shirt (While supplies last).

Don't miss Resource Reef, featuring community resources and hot dogs, and Serenity Point, featuring stress relief & coping skills activities such as pet, art and music therapy to beat stress!
