Cass Health will host a health fair in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. The fair will be held on Tuesday, May 23 from 1 to 5 pm in Conference Room 2, and the public is encouraged to attend. Everyone in the community is also encouraged to wear green that day; green is the official color for Mental Health Awareness.

Vendors at the fair include Cass Health’s Senior Life Solutions team, Southwest Iowa Mental Health Center, Therapy Place, Family Connections, Cass County Public Health, Veterans Affairs, Cass County Extension, and NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness).

National Mental Health Awareness Month was created by Congress in 1949 as part of an effort to help address the mental health struggles of WWII veterans.
