Through mental health month and beyond, you are not alone

As advocates and organizations nationwide raise awareness about the reality of living with mental illness, Comprehensive Healthcare is joining the call to remind everyone in our community that you are not alone.

During Mental Health Month in May, Comprehensive Healthcare organized several activities and community education trainings to better support individuals with a mental illness, including:
• Creating sidewalk art and setting up posters around our many centers throughout Central Washington
• Facilitating yoga sessions for our providers who help clients face their own mental health hurdles
• Wearing green in solidarity with other advocates and community organizations working to destigmatize mental health
• Supporting our adolescent inpatient individuals at Two Rivers Landing to create art projects
• Hosting Mental Health First Aid community trainings for youth and adults, in addition to stress and resilience workshops for local employers
• Participating in the City of Selah’s first declaration of May as Mental Health Month
• Promoting programs from the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI) such as their walk rally and community forum
• Increasing access to and awareness of Comprehensive Healthcare’s commitment to high quality community behavioral healthcare
• Organizing a Facebook Live event featuring two therapists and a peer support counselor with lived experience for a community-wide Q&A session called “Ask Me Anything”

While coping with a mental illness can feel challenging, you never have to do it alone. Comprehensive Healthcare is here for you throughout the month of May and beyond with our community programs and 24/7 crisis services.
