Wellness Fair

On Thursday May 2nd, Placer4Mentalhealth hosted their first ever Mental Health Wellness Fair at the Maidu Community Center in Roseville, CA. The fair included 40+ vendors and over 600 attendees.

This was a FREE event open to the public featuring wellness workshops, family friendly activities, free food, and Medi-Cal sign-ups. The event also featured live entertainment from comedians Drew Shafer & Dejan Tyler, Auburn Hip Hop Congress, and finalist of Season 21 of The Voice Katie Rae! 

Here's a news article covering the event by Gold Country Media and a recap video below created by Placer County HHS.

A big thank you to the committee members, sponsors, vendors, performers, and everyone who helped make this event possible!
