The Florida Recovery Center was honored to speak on the importance of mental health at the UF Campus, Get Fit Gator Fair. Reducing stigma and raising awareness is important to our youth, so they become more comfortable asking for help and getting the services they may need.
The Freshman Leadership Council organized the event, sponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service and held on the Reitz Lawn. The event drew a number of students and presenters and included educational speakers, workout competitions, tabling organizations, and a focus on physical and mental health. This event provided students with resources on how to improve overall health and encouraged them to prioritize their own health as they go through the college experience.
