The Mental Wellness Walk seeks to raise awareness of the importance of mental well-being and community resources that exist for people with mental health and substance dependence issues. Mental health was ranked the “leading health issue facing the county” according to the most recent Buncombe County Community Health Assessment with half the respondents reporting that mental health care “was the most difficult to access.”
All funds raised will support the work of these two organizations that provide the community with mental health and substance dependence counseling, support, education, and advocacy. For more information about the walk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828-505-7353.
