Optimal Health Foundation Hosts Inaugural Mental Health Awareness Banquet in Miami Gardens May 20th

The Optimal Health Foundation is proud to announce its upcoming free event, “Minds Matter: A Mental Health Awareness Banquet,” which will be held on May 20th, 2023, from 5pm to 8pm at the Senior Family Center located at 18330 NW 12th Avenue in Miami Gardens.

Mental health is a crucial issue that affects millions of people worldwide, and unfortunately, many individuals do not receive the support they need to manage their mental health conditions. The Minds Matter event aims to shed light on this issue and provide resources and support to individuals, including those who face additional barriers such as low income, minimal support system, low education, and other social determinants.

This free event will feature guest speakers and entertainment focused on mental health management, self-care, and coping strategies. We believe that by bringing together community members, mental health professionals, advocates, and caregivers, we can create a more supportive and understanding community for those affected by mental health issues.

“We are excited to host the Minds Matter event and bring attention to this important issue,” said Kristen Hollist, President of the Optimal Health Foundation. “Mental health affects everyone, and it is crucial that we come together as a community to support those who need it the most.”

The Optimal Health Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting optimal health and wellness in the community through education, advocacy, and access to resources.

Optimal Health Foundation is a community-based health and social service organization providing supplemental health services, linkage to care and other resources to individuals experiencing challenges in maintaining their health. We serve vulnerable populations affected by chronic and infectious disease in Miami-Dade and surrounding counties.
