Mental Health Awareness
After a year of loss and isolation from living through the COVID-19 pandemic, many Beach Cities residents are emerging from the pandemic with mixed emotions, such as feeling overwhelmed, or even experiencing anger and depression.
Given that May is Mental Health Awareness month, BCHD is offering a variety of programs and resources available to community members during the month of May (and beyond). See BCHD's Mental Health Awareness Month resources here.
