WellMe Minds Matter

A mental health fair at Belle Square

May 24, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, one in six U.S. adults lives with a mental illness—nearly 44.7 million people. Chances are, members of your workforce are affected by mental illness, whether personally or through a friend or family member. Join Mayo Clinic Health System and The Weber Group for a focus on mental wellness in La Crosse County and provide resources for those dealing with a mental health issue.

During the WellMe Minds Matter event, Mayo Clinic Health System mental health experts will offer free depression screenings,  free adverse childhood event screenings, free chair massages and healing touch therapy. Event attendees will also have an opportunity to meet Rufus the Newfoundland therapy dog and enjoy Energy Bites provided by Mayo Clinic Health System Nutritional Services.

Experts will be on hand to deliver presentations on key topics surrounding mental health. Each presentation is a quick 15 minutes, designed to let you drop in and out during your busy work day.
