OCAPICA's Latest News

May- Mental Health Awareness Month

May was Mental Health Awareness month and lime green is the official color for raising awareness. Mental health is important especially since 50% of adults in the United States will experience a mental health challenge in their lifetime.  Led by the Well(ness)essity Team, OCAPICA has been dedicated to encouraging participants to reflect on why mental health matters.

We have started the mental health tree in the Well(ness)essity lobby and invited community partners, volunteers, participants, and staff to write down what mental health means to you on the leaves of our tree.   This tree is a longlasting symbol of our dedication to increasing awareness of the importance of Mental Health, decreasing its stigma, and is our way of ensuring that we always value the importance of wellness.
