Did you know that doing art can help your mental health? It can! A savvy group of Girl Scouts realized the healing power of art and assembled Art Boxes full of supplies for community members to use. One will be unveiled at NAMI SE MN's Art Pop-Up! Come try your hand at creating, or, if you just want to come for some snacks and social time, you're welcome to do that, too! You can get an event flyer here.
Getting Real About Mental Health and Violence
Wednesday, May 23, 6:00-8:00 p.m. @ Rochester Public Library Auditorium

You might be surprised to learn that it is not accurate and there is much more complexity associated with the risk of violence. You will have the chance to learn, ask questions and engage in conversation. Here is the event flyer.
