Mental Health Awareness at the State Fair is back in 2021! This event, which features CARE Counseling along with about 60 other mental health organizations from across the state, is an opportunity for all Minnesotans to raise awareness about mental health, which is more important now than ever before as we continue to recover from the negative impacts of the global pandemic. Enjoy awareness-raising activities at every booth, many of them geared for youth and families, or help with a collaborative community art project. Stage performances begin at 8:30 am with a Native American drum circle. Additional stage performances will include a panel on mental health facilitated by MPR’s Angela Davis at 11:00, musical acts, DOGYA with therapy dogs, and more! The event is free with fair admission and will be held on August 30, from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Dan Patch Park located next to the Grandstand.
The State Fair provides a unique opportunity to educate a very large and diverse group of people about mental health issues – something that touches almost every family in some way. Led by the MN State Advisory Council on Mental Health & Subcommittee on Children’s Mental Health and NAMI Minnesota, 60 mental health organizations will participate in the day’s activities.
