As part of its return to in-person meetings, the Dana Point Civic Association will host the mental health collaborative Mind OC at its next coffee chat at Coffee Importers this Friday, May 20, at 8:30 a.m.

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Marshall Moncrief, CEO of Mind OC and Be Well Orange County will discuss the not-for-profit’s work in Orange County.

Mind OC operates Be Well Orange County, a community-wide mental health collaborative that opened three mental health and wellness campuses in Orange last year.

Earlier this month, Be Well OC announced the launch of the StigmaFree OC awareness campaign in partnership with the Orange County Health Care Agency and First 5 Orange County.

The campaign aims to dispel the stigma associated with mental illness and addiction and encourage people to seek help.

Coffee will be complimentary, courtesy of Coffee Importers. All are welcome to attend. Coffee Importers is located at 34531 Golden Lantern, Dana Point.
