On Saturday March 19, Macon Mental Health Matters will be hosting a pop-up mental health gym from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Kings Park (3296 Kingston Court).
The pop-up gym returns to Kings Park after being there in August 2021. Gyms have been making their way across the community since May 2021 to bring mental health resources and support directly to neighborhoods through the Macon Mental Health initiative Matters.
This weekend’s event includes a Zen tea garden, yoga, creating vision boards, therapeutic consultations and a drumming circle. The gym is free and open to people of all ages. This weekend they will be doing visual logging for the first time.
“It’s a great way to reduce stress and express your personal narrative,” says Nancy Cleveland, executive director of Macon Head Space. “We want to promote mental wellness and educate people about the resources available to them in Macon. There is no “one size fits all” solution for mental health, so we want to provide various outlets to help everyone create their own headspace. »
The gymnasium is also looking for volunteers to help with this weekend’s event and future events. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Nancy Cleveland at (917) 470-5491 or [email protected]
