About this event
“Better Together for Mental Health” is a community-wide celebration of Mental Health Month. Its take-home message is that every day is mental health day. There are so many things we can do on a daily basis to help keep ourselves and others mentally healthy. More than 15 local organizations and dozens of artists, musicians, mental health practitioners, and volunteers are planning activities.
Story House Ithaca has been an active part of the "Better Together" organizing effort. We have volunteered to set up a “tribute wall” bulletin board where anyone can post the names of their mental health heroes, and another board where people can post notes naming “one thing I do to feel better.”
The Jerry Garcia-inspired band Scuba Jerry will perform from 10 to 1 and the R&B dance band Neo Project will take over from 1 to 3 pm. Nate the Great will juggle, DJ Ronald Fletcher will spin tunes for kids, and acoustic musicians will play their instruments around the park. Luna Street Food, Megamoos and Purity Ice Cream will serve up delicious food.
Other activities include guided walks, yoga and movement sessions, writing and storytelling workshops, live music, face painting, free food and ice cream.
