Garden of the Mind event shows the ‘little things’ for mental health

Panhandle PBS put together a Garden of the Mind event to help people learn some “little things” they can do for their mental health on Saturday. Various stations have been set up at Amarillo College to raise awareness of the things that can be done for someone’s mental health.

Crayons surrounded the board at Saturday's Garden of the Mind event.  The board allowed attendees to write down their feelings for others to see, so people would know they weren't alone.

Panhandle PBS has a new series called The Little Things which aired its first episode on September 15th. According to a Panhandle PBS press release, “The Little Things” will be an eight-part series produced by Panhandle PBS in partnership with the Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance and the Texas Panhandle Centers for Behavioral and Developmental Health. The Garden of the Mind event took the same teachings from the “little things” and made different tents to examine them.

“Getting out in nature, exercise, food, communication, and creativity are all great ways to improve your mental health,” said Corby Fails, director of marketing for Panhandle PBS.
