mentalhealthmonthAs part of May Mental Health Month, the County Department of Behavioral Health is having an Expo on Thursday, May 22 from 2 to 6 p.m.

Residents will be provided with information, education and resources regarding mental health services in their communities. The Expo will be held at County of San Bernardino Health Services, 850 E. Foothill Boulevard in Rialto.

The Department of Behavioral Health has adopted the “Mind Your Health” theme and encourages residents  – through service, education and partnership – to fully embrace the concept that health and wellness not only improve health in the mind, body and spirit, but also maximizes one’s potential to lead a full and productive life. May Mental Health Month was designed to raise awareness about mental illness and the importance of mental wellness for all.  The Department of Behavioral Health is proud to continue its tradition of celebrating May Mental Health Month, which began in 1949. This year’s national theme is “Mind Your Health,” which is directly linked to the Countywide Vision element of Wellness.

The Expo provides an opportunity for residents to learn about mental health, services and empower themselves and others to mind their health.
