Miami Beach Lights Up Green for Mental Health
The City of Miami Beach will light up green starting tonight through Saturday, May 20 to commemorate May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Miami Beach City Hall will be bathed in green lights starting at sundown.
“Mental illness doesn’t have to be a barrier to a long and productive life, nor do people need to suffer alone,” explained Miami Beach Commissioner Laura Dominguez. “There are free services available in Miami-Dade County for anyone who needs them.”
The public is invited to show their support of mental health awareness by participating in a 5K walk organized by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Miami-Dade from 9:30-11 a.m. on May 20 at LoanDepot Park, 501 Marlins Way, Miami.
