San Gabriel's Human Equity, Access, and Relations (HEAR) Commission invites families and community members to participate in the free Mental Wellness Expo on Sunday, October 1 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Mission District.
Representing a day of empowerment and education, the event will shed light on how to manage mental wellness through a series of workshops; offer resources and valuable knowledge from various community groups; provide complimentary relaxation and mindfulness activities; and help connect those interested in various mental health topics with services available in San Gabriel Valley and beyond.
The expo will feature free mindfulness sessions where attendees can drop in and experience self-care and relaxation techniques, such as yoga, sound baths and Tai Chi.
Workshops led by mental health experts will be offered in English and translated live to Spanish and Mandarin at the Mission District’s Grapevine Arbor:
Additionally, Brandon Tsay, known for his pivotal role in preventing further loss of life during the Monterey Park shooting incident earlier this year, will share his inspiring journey as the event’s guest speaker. Tsay will share how he coped with mental health challenges since the incident and his strategies for recovery.
