Healthy Minds

The mental and emotional effects of COVID-19 are impacting well-being in significant ways amid the pandemic, with 40 percent of U.S. adults reporting symptoms of anxiety or depression, in addition to increases in substance use and thoughts of suicide. To address this urgent and increased need for support, 17 behavioral health organizations across Lee and Collier counties have partnered to launch a new community initiative called Healthy Minds.

Healthy Minds will offer educational events and complimentary screenings across Lee and Collier counties, providing accessible, convenient tips and resources at no cost for adults who are experiencing new or increased feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, substance use and more.

Healthy Minds events will be held at select dates and locations over the next several months, offering valuable resources, tools, techniques and screenings geared toward gaining resiliency and overcoming adversity. No advance registration is necessary. Those interested can simply show up to be linked with local service providers and learn about the community resources available.

A Healthy Minds Resilience Toolkit will be handed out to all guests at the events and is available for download at Visit the website for a full list of upcoming events and resources, or to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
