7TH Annual Beautiful Minds Walk this Weekend

Posted: Updated:

The 7th annual Beautiful Minds Walk kicks off Saturday morning at 11 at the Montana Expo Park.  The walk itself begins at one in the afternoon.  You can pre-register for this free event or sign up when you get there.  A wellness fair with educational booths is available.

In true carnival style there, will be tons of fun activities for kids and plenty of food.  One interactive hot spot is the art exhibit where kids can creatively express their dreams for the future.  The theme for this art exhibit is "When I grow up I can do anything".  Heidi Gibson, Executive Director of the Center for Mental Health Foundation, says, "it's to inspire the kids that no matter what kind of disability that they are diagnosed with it isn't who they are and they can still go on and follow their dreams".

One in four people will be diagnosed with a mental illness in their lifetime.  Dealing with mental illness can be isolating and the whole goal of this event is awareness and community support.

A new therapy being featured this weekend is equine therapy, which uses horses to facilitate growth and development.
