Retreat Behavioral Health has announced it will host Dare to Self-Care, a women’s self-care and mental health expo, this weekend. On Sunday, Feb. 9, Retreat is inviting women to the Live 360 court at the Mall at Wellington Green for an afternoon of activities designed to improve their mental, emotional and physical health.
“At Retreat Behavioral Health, we think it’s important to support the well-being of our patients, employees and the communities we serve,” said Peter Schorr, Retreat Behavioral Health CEO. “In our fast-paced society, it can be hard to slow down and make sure that you’re taking care of yourself. We hope that by providing access to events like this, we can encourage more people to integrate self-care into their everyday lives.”
Event attendees can take advantage of a number of free activities, including a journaling and creative writing course, acupuncture demonstrations and health assessments. There will also be yoga, Zumba and Krav Maga self-defense classes available for a fee.
The money raised by these classes will benefit the 211 Crisis Hotline, the community helpline that provides suicide prevention, crisis intervention, information, assessments and referral to community services for people of all ages.
The event will take place Sunday, Feb. 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Mall at Wellington Green, located at 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd. For more info., visit www.shopwellingtongreen.com/events.
