May is Mental Health Month and I wanted to check in on you as we all are still reeling from our last year.
Our community has many resources to encourage you to strengthen your mental health – whether it’s getting professional help or getting outside and taking in the fresh air.
Consider a walk around the beautiful Chollas Creek Park. We are proud of this outdoor linear park and the way it creates a peaceful pathway from Market Street and Euclid Avenue. If you haven’t been yet, take a walk through and check out the public art … you never know, you may find a 10-foot barrel cactus sculpture!
I also want to highlight Open Heart Leaders, an African American female-led organization providing full mental health and education services. This organization was a Southeastern San Diego COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund recipient, and they have added to their services through virtual events to provide safe spaces for people to talk about the issues they face daily. Check out their programs, open to all, including interactive discussions, mentoring and counseling.

If you need a mindful break, look into Moon Garden Meditation, a business that went through CONNECT ALL @ the Jacobs Center’s business accelerator program. From live guided meditations on social media to simple tips, you can learn about creating calm moments in your daily routine.
Wishing you all a safe and healthy month.
