May is Mental Health Awareness Month and May 13th is Mental Health Matters Day.

 

Each Mind MattersMental Health Matters Day will kick-off the morning of May 13th on the South Lawn of the Capitol Building in Sacramento with interactive exhibits and vendor tables to show support for mental health. A program will follow with a key note presentation by Senate President pro tem Darrell Steinberg, celebrities and champions of mental health. A march to Raley Field for a River Cats game (discounted tickets available) with a focus on mental health geared towards K-12 students will follow the Capitol program. The afternoon will wrap up at the Crest Theater, where we will honor the winners of this year’s Directing Change student PSA contest.
