Welcome to the Mental Health Wellness Canopy, where our community can gather education, information, and resources to accommodate their journey to mental health wellness.
Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw is sponsoring the “Canopy” to participate at community events we are invited to within the Washtenaw County area. We will set up a 10x10 foot canopy or a table (dependent on the space available at the event). We will provide educational materials to the community and build relationships for further resources within the community.
Washtenaw Alive Coalition participants are encouraged to provide information and resources that will assist the community with suicide prevention, mental health wellness.
Many other organizations have planned community events, festivals, concerts and welcome the public to enjoy what they have to offer. Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw is willing to set up our canopy at each event we are invited to and share mental health information and resources with the community.
