Highlands Cashiers Health Foundation is working to raise awareness for mental health awareness throughout the upcoming month of May.

BEE Kind, founded in May of 2023 in partnership with the Counseling Center of Highlands, is an initiative that believes “Mental Health Begins With Kindness” and works to open conversations and reduce stigmas for people of all ages and walks of life. We believe that the more kind, empathetic, and curious our community can become, the better we all will be as a Plateau and beyond!

We have been working to fill the month of May with enriching opportunities for people of all ages and walks of life. Anything that can raise our collective awareness around mental and behavioral health is worth our time and energy.  We will also be sharing mental health tips and encouragement on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Make sure you are following us at @HCHealthFnd .

We want to thank all of our partners who make BEE Kind so special. Thank you for joining BEE Kind 2024! 

Check back often, as we will be updating this page throughout the month of May.
