Each Mind Matters – Orange County

Mission Hospital is activating Each Mind Matters, California’s Mental Health Movement in Orange County. This movement provides resources and tools to encourage southern Orange County residents to engage in open and honest conversations about mental health with friends, family and community members. Conducted in a safe way, these conversations can improve community understanding, acceptance and support of mental health and wellness.

Mental health is an integral part of each of us as humans. When we help each other and communicate, we can improve and strengthen our community. Let’s join together as community members and Make a Promise to open our hearts and minds to a new understanding of mental wellness for everyone.
