As the necessary need for mental health awareness and self-care has grown over the course of the last few years, this last year specifically, SWMHS has collectively decided to honor our commitment to servicing the student (and faculty) populations. Our inaugural virtual mental health fair is being held between May 10 – May 17, 2021 and the community will be able to utilize this site as a continual resource for their everyday actions. Mental health awareness and self-care is a top priority which we hope those in need will be able to implement in their daily practices.
