Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an opportunity to prioritize mental health, well-being, and mindfulness and bring our voices together to advocate for mental health and access to care. This year the Florida Recreation and Parks Association (FRPA) and Village of Wellington encourages the community to “Take Time for You.” Throughout the month, we will showcase how our Village's programs, services, and amenities provide a means of relaxation and well-being for residents of all ages.
