WellLife Network Celebrates World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is celebrated annually on October 10th to highlight issues of global mental health education, awareness, and advocacy against the social stigma of mental health illnesses. Treatment and support are available for those who need it—and the door to conversation must always remain open. For the individuals who had a makeover, the day was a time to relax and enjoy the feeling of being special. The Garden Hair & Beauty Salon donated 10% of its sales on October 10th to WellLife Network. Customers who participated on that day instantly received a profile of a family or individual whose life is being transformed by one of WellLife's mental health programs.

WellLife Celebrates Women’s History Month and National Social Work Month

March is Women’s History Month. It is also National Social Work Month. WellLife is proud of all of our staff, but we pay special tribute to our social workers who help the people who come to our doors solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives. WellLife’s team of social workers confront some of the most challenging issues facing communities and society and forge solutions that help people reach their full potential.

To honor National Women’s History Month and National Social Work Month, we reflect on the life of Dr. Antonia Pantoja, a Latina social worker who, prior to her passing in 2012, was regarded as one of the most important leaders in the United States.
