Here’s the thing: we all have mental health. Your brain is as important to your happiness as your heart, lungs, or bones. So let’s talk about mental health, because we are all in this together.

GET INVOLVED

We have the power to make a positive difference in our community when it comes to mental health and it starts with TALKING. The change starts with all of us.

Be The Change
We are all connected.

Nature has a wisdom to it that can teach us so much- if we pay attention. 

The aspen tree is the perfect example. Aspens are unique in that a forest of trees can actually be one tree. 

Just like the aspen tree, we are all connected to one another at the source of our being. We are all a part of something so much greater than our individual selves. We are connected by our roots. Imagine a world where we all acted like aspen trees….

There is a peace in knowing we are not alone. Peace in knowing that even when the winds of life are cold and blowing hard, all we need to do is turn our leaves and allow the colony- our community- to shoulder the burden with us, for we are all connected.

We are stronger together.

Emotional well-being is essential for people and communities to thrive. Our mental health is a critical part of living the healthy lifestyle valued in this community and why so many choose the Gunnison Valley as home.  Living here can present many challenges and it’s ok to not be ok. I joined the efforts of CB State of Mind because I love this community and believe in our mission. I am committed to raising the community’s voice and strengthening collaborative partnerships that are required to create real change.

Birds of Hope 🐦 : 2 opportunities to participate this week in creating these birds!  More info below 🪺 

Tonight, Wed April 10th at @crestedbutteclaystudio 5-7pm with only 2 spots left-so please sign up on their website.
Saturday,  April 13th at  @wonderlandclay 5-7pm sign up on their website.

Have you been seeing the clay birds out and about in the Gunnison Valley? Maybe you have stumbled upon one or heard about their travels throughout the community. Now you can join the flock and create your own! The Hopeful Birds Project was created to bring people together during these strange times.

The way it works:  A flock of ceramic birds is created and dispersed throughout the community. Once found, community members are encouraged to interact with the bird by creatively building them a nest, finding another bird friend, making them a scarf, etc.  These tasks are accomplished in one’s own creative way, documented with a photograph, and then put back into the ‘wild’ for the next person to stumble upon. 

Students in this class will be creating two ceramic birds- one to keep and one to share with the community.
