Mental Health Month 2018

Fitness #4Mind4Body

This May, BHD is proud to partner with Mental Health America to recognize Mental Health Month by promoting Fitness #4Mind4Body. We know taking care of both mental and physical health contributes to a person’s overall wellness - and we want your help to share this with people whose health you care about.

Get Involved


Throughout May, BHD will share a #4Mind4Body challenge on our Facebook and Twitter pages encouraging you to make small changes that will make a big impact on your overall wellness. We encourage you to share your progress online using #4Mind4Body.

In Person

Several of our community partners will host free community events to promote Fitness #4Mind4Body. We encourage you to participate wherever you are able and share these with your networks.
