Resiliency, not Resolutions!

We know how challenging it's been navigating the unknown.

We believe that mental wellbeing is more important than ever and that includes our emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

We want to point you toward the road to resiliency! The AHA is challenging people across the Bay Area to create bold boundaries, redefine happiness and give yourself permission to #TakeAbreak to make mental and heart health a priority.
