Mental Health Fair coming to Glendale Community College

Kevin Hines

The 3rd Annual mental Health Fair “Mind Your Health” goes 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday, April 3 inside the student union and the central mall area on the Glendale Community College campus, 6000 W. Olive Ave.

Visitors can learn more about mental health at interactive resource booths, join in free activities and health assessments, and network with local organizations or even start a new career in mental health.

Career booths are available 9 a.m-noon. On-site job interviews will be available, so dress to impress.

Learn more about mental health by attending interactive workshops and conferences.

Kevin Hines, a survivor who attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge, will share his story of desperation, regret and redemption in two presentations: 10 a.m. in the Performing Arts Center, and 2 p.m. in the Student Union.

Also at GCC, the future West Valley workforce got an introduction to career options as well as guidance on interviewing and dressing for success at the Glendale Community College Spring Opportunity Fair, which drew more than 400 students and was hosted by the GCC Career and Employment Services team.

More than 40 companies and organizations had booths at the fair, and offered information and took applications for jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities.
