Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention is holding “Medfield Moves for Mental Health”, a month-long virtual event to promote mental health through physical activity and movement.
After the long winter, we can take advantage of the outdoors by getting moving and promoting our personal mental health and uplifting our communities well-being. Register and share images online of you staying active with the hashtag #MedfieldMovesforMentalHealth.
