Navigating The Mosaic of Mental Well-Being

***If have more than 25 participants, requires at least 3 weeks notice for the event

Option 2: Each participant contributes broken pieces to a larger heart that will be completed by Mosaics after the event and given to the organizer.  Four small hearts will also be given to the organizer to hand out at their discretion.

Both options occur while talking through principles of how to identify, respond to, and support individuals and families struggling with mental well-being.  These principles correspond with the analogies of the mosaic making process.
