Mental Health and Wellness Workshops
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Our mission this month as a Los Rios community is to R.I.S.E. together. R.I.S.E stands for Reducing stigma, Increasing awareness, Strengthening resolve, and Elevating over the obstacles that can weigh us down. When we R.I.S.E. as a community, it supports us all as “sticks in a bundle are unbreakable” (African proverb).
This month, join the Los Rios Center for Mental Health and Wellness team for three workshop opportunities. These workshops will focus on coping with stress, mindfulness, and gaining skills to support yourself or those you love who may be at higher risk for suicide.
