May is Mental Health Month! We invite you and your furry friend(s) to join us and raise awareness for mental health wellness and suicide prevention.

Our Fur Babies play an important role in our lives. They can lower stress and bring happiness to our lives. Let's celebrate that bond and the positive impact our pets have on our mental health. Explore other ways you can take care of your mental health at the mental health wellness fair.

Money raised goes to critical research, education programs, advocacy, and support for those affected by mental health and suicide.
