October is mental health awareness month. HIKE for Mental Health is a non-profit organization that helps to stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails. As many of you already know, school (and work!) can be really stressful. Please consider making a donation, or sharing this page in honor of mental health awareness month.
If you would like to join, the hike starts at the beginning of San Francisco Bay Trail, San Francisco, CA 94129 at 10:00 AM on October 30th. To see the trail click here or here, before the hike, I will be at the Warming Hut Bookstore and Cafe if you would like to meet me there. Hope to see you soon!
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
