• Life Fest

    a Mental Health Mixer & Suicide Nixer

    We are losing too many good people to suicides. Suicides are up 34% in Missouri since 1999, which is unacceptable.

     

    During Suicide Awareness Month this year, we're taking counseling and comfort direct to you.

     

    Won't you join us Sept. 21, from Noon to 6 pm at Mulberry Lake at the Village at Briarcliff. Ask our counselors about anything weighing on your mind and get hooked up with mental health resources in a fun, approachable manor.

     

    Please come as you are. Bring your dog, bring your family and bring your kids. Leave happier and more connected.

     

    Life Fest is presented by Signature Psychiatric Hospital and benefits Tri-County Mental Health Services. More than 20 mental health and wellness organizations will provide education and resources throughout the event.
