Raising Mental Health Awareness
This past weekend, TEAM FPHSA participated in the 1st Annual St. Tammany NAMI-Walks Event at the Mandeville Lakefront. As a group, TEAM FPHSA raised an amazing $2,200 that contributed to NAMI St. Tammany's cause which raised $92,581 in total, crushing their inaugural year goal of $75,000. Charley Cormier, Employee Relations Committee (ERC) Chair, said "It goes without saying that we had fun and raised money and awareness for a worthy cause. If someone missed the walk this year, we encourage them to join us next year."
FPHSA partners with NAMI to help support our growing community's mental health needs. NAMI St. Tammany is an organization dedicated to offering education, support, resources, and advocacy for individuals living with mental illness, their families, and the community. The mental health needs of our community continue to grow as our population increases.
