A couple of community groups are coming together this Friday for a dodgeball tournament to raise awareness around mental wellness.
Heritage Behavioral Health and the Suicide Prevention Workgroup in DeWitt County are coming together to host a dodgeball tournament Friday at Clinton High School. Cory Baxter at Heritage says this is a fun, free event to raise awareness.
According to Baxter, they are looking for teams of six to ten that are in the high school to adult age groups. Registration is due this week.
Friday's event is simply designed to raise awareness around mental health. Baxter explains the Suicide Prevention Workgroup does events like this to get in front of the community and bring awareness to suicide and promote prevention.
Registration for this event closes tomorrow, Wednesday, July 20. Visit heritagenet.org to register.
The event again is Friday, July 22 at 6 pm.
