York County to 'light the way' with series of mental health awareness events
York County will host a Walk to Wellness on Wednesday, kicking off a month of events designed to raise awareness of mental health issues.
The walk will begin at noon at the York County Administrative Center, 28 East Market St., York, according to information provided by York County Human Services. After hearing from York County officials about the issues and how the public can promote mental health, the short walk through town will begin.
In the event of rain, the Walk to Wellness will meet at the Commissioners' Meeting Room on the second floor of the Administrative Center.
In addition to the Walk to Wellness, other events will help to promote awareness of mental health in York County. Those events include First Friday later this week and Light Up Green, where York County residents are encouraged to change an outside lightbulb to green from May 16 through May 22. Green is the national color of mental health.
Attendees are encouraged to wear green to awareness month events.
Mental Health Awareness Month is hosted locally by York County Human Services in partnership with the York-Adams Mental Health-Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities program, the Crisis Intervention Team and the System of Care.
