Thinking Differently: Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance Celebrates Mental Health Awareness Month—TONIGHT in Amarillo

Visit Arts in the Sunset from 4:30-7p CT for a free art therapy forum. It's a hands-on exploration of art and its impact on mental health. The event focuses on students (grades 6-12) and their family members, but all are welcome!

Thanks so much to Lytton St. Stephen, Program Officer at PBHA, for stopping by HPPR's High Plains Morning for a chat about the importance of mental health. They shared some wonderful insights and reminders that taking care of ourselves is important and that resources are available.
