Mental Wellness: Ensuring a Healthy Future in Summit County

4 May @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

As part of our work to create an enduring philanthropic community for all the people of Park City, Park City Community Foundation is hosting a panel event focused on mental wellness.

High depression, anxiety, suicide rates, and substance abuse continue to be critical issues in our community — for both adults and teens. Please join members of our local Mental Wellness Alliance and hear from a panel of experts on how mental health is being prioritized in our community. We will discuss access to mental health services for local populations, and you’ll learn how Park City and Summit County are coping with the challenges, and how you can help.
