The Beautiful Mind Project-Green Day Out
The Beautiful Mind Project, a St. Cloud-based non-profit organization, is encouraging people in our area to wear green-colored clothing on Wednesday, May 19th on what called is “Green Out Day” for mental health awareness.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and wearing green on Wednesday, May 19th is a very visible way to start conversations and to show support for people dealing with mental health issues.
The Beautiful Mind Project was created to help prioritize mental health. Through the various programs and events it sponsors, they aim to change the way our communities treat mental health from both a cultural and clinical perspective. Nearly half of all Americans will suffer from a mental health challenge in their lifetimes, yet a good number of them will not receive treatment from a mental health professional.
The organization partners with mental health providers across Minnesota to provide same and next day appointments for individuals in need of immediate mental health services.
