October 10 is World Mental Health Day

Monday, October 1, 2018

In observance of World Mental Health Day on October 10, the BrainFutures team is excited to participate in this year’s JWB Resiliency 5K & 1 Mile Family Walk/Run on October 14.

World Mental Health Day was launched by the World Health Organization to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilize efforts in support of mental health.

The JWB Resiliency 5K & 1 Mile Family Walk/Run will support efforts to fund, conduct, and promote research on how holistic treatments – such as exercise, nutrition, and healthy lifestyle choices – benefit mental health.

Lynne and Victor Brick, who spoke at the BrainFutures conference, founded the John W. Brick Foundation in memory of Victor’s brother, John.
