Description We invite you to participate in a unique Wellness Fair for mental health consumers in New York City. As you know, the challenge to improve/maintain healthy lifestyle goals is one that we can all relate to. However, for the mental health consumer community, these challenges are often magnified due to stigma, as well as a lack of access to resources, information, and support. By organizing this event, "Creating Wellness," we hope to provide an opportunity to improve the lives of the individuals we serve. Using a traditional health fair format, information will be provided on the Eight Dimensions of Wellness: physical, emotional, financial, spiritual, social, environmental, intellectual, and occupational. Health screenings, lectures, and free demonstrations will be part of the agenda on this exciting day.
