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.
