End mental health stigma at Mind Fest 2021

Mental health deserves more attention. To aid this effort, the Wichita Journalism Collaborative (WJC) is bringing Wichitans together for Mind Fest 2021 from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, July 31 at The Wave in Old Town, 650 E. Second Street.

Mind Fest is the culmination of Mindful Solutions, a series focused on mental health from the WJC — a coalition of 10 local newsrooms and community institutions. The event features free trusted mental health support, live music, nachos, massages and yoga.

This event is meant to provide a safe space for learning more about mental health concerns while relaxing and having fun. The first 250 attendees will receive a gift bag and relaxation items like mindfulness journals, sleep masks, and hot and cold packs.
