Welcome to WellWeek 2018, a Houston-born initiative to raise awareness about common medical problems: depression and anxiety. One in five Houstonians suffers from mental illness. Through conversation, we seek to eliminate the stigma that prevents many of our loved ones from seeking help.
WellWeek is October 7th - October 13th
Coinciding with National Mental Illness Awareness Week, and International Mental Health Day, #WellWeek offers Houstonians the opportunity to engage in open discussion about the scope of this national epidemic, a key first step to turning the tide in favor of successful treatment.
Local eateries will offer a "depressed dessert” confection to remind diners that one in five Houstonians may have trouble appreciating the sweeter parts of life. Bars will offer non-alcoholic beverages that rival the complexity of a cocktail in support of individuals whose healing requires moderation or abstention from alcohol.
We thank Cause Events for their generous support and sponsorship.
WellWeek Beneficiaries: National Alliance on Mental Illness Greater Houston (NAMI GH), Legacy Community Health Mental Health Services and Southern Smoke.
