The Behavioral Health Department and the Evergreen Center at Memorial Hospital and Memorial Medical Clinics are teaming up in the month of May for Mental Health Awareness Month to do a Mental Wellness Challenge that you can complete in your community.
Wellness Challenge Instructions: This challenge is designed to help you improve your mental health and well-being by participating in four weekly challenges during the month of May for Mental Health Awareness Month.
Each week, participants will focus on a different aspect of mental wellness, such as movement, hobbies, socializing, and self-care. To participate, snap a picture of you doing the weekly corresponding challenge and tag “Memorial Hospital in Carthage, IL” on Facebook. That’s it! All submissions will enter you into a drawing for a grand prize that will be drawn at the end of May.
