NORWALK, Conn. — Norwalk ACTS and Cornerstone Community Church held a community day Saturday at Ryan Park, and Chapman Hyperlocal Media Inc. Board member John Levin was there taking photographs.

The community day was focused on mental health awareness. “I’ve seen the toll this pandemic has taken on members of my own family, including myself, including my husband, who’s a high school teacher locally,” Norwalk ACTS Chief Executive Officer Jennifer Barahona said recently. “Mental health is not only about serious mental illness or significant trauma, it’s about the day to day stress and anxiety that accumulates over time and takes a toll on our ability to effectively parent, to work, to be fully present for ourselves and our loved ones.”

Cornerstone Community Church thanked these participants:

  • United Healthcare
  • Norwalk Early Childhood
  • TurningPointCT
  • The Odyssey Family Executive Center
  • CAAWC
  • High Focus Centers
  • Millennium Dance Co.
  • Ase Kreationz
  • DJ Neesh
  • Open Doors
  • Human Services Council
  • Alliance for Community Empowerment
  • El Shaddai Ministries
  • Norwalk Head Start
  • Internaciona Alliance of Chaplains
  • FCA
  • Help for Kids
  • Norwalk Public Liabrary Pop up Truck
  • NCHC Mobile unit
  • Keep Kickin Soccer
  • Norwalk ACTS

Happy event in Ryan Park was a success. Wished we knew about it. Need better publicity for many of the events in Norwalk.
