Walk to End Stigma Against Mental Health at Mile Square Park
Supervisor Do joined the Orange County Association for Vietnamese Mental Health Awareness & Support’s WESAMI (Walk to End Stigma Against Mental Health) Sunday morning at Mile Square Park.

The goal of this walk was to encourage those who are experiencing mental health issues to seek treatment and support without fear of stigmatization. The event was a great opportunity for people to come together and talk about mental health, raising awareness of the issue within the Vietnamese community.

Ending the stigmatization of mental health helps to bridge the gap in services for those suffering from mental health issues. We can all work together to address this pressing need in Orange County.
