The 2nd Annual Mental Health and Wellness Fair to increase awareness of mental health and resources has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 26th from 4 pm to 5:30 pm at the Clifton-Clyde High School gymnasium.  This fair, which was postponed earlier this month due to illness with their keynote speaker, has been put together through a collaboration of mental and physical health providers, the local ministerial alliance, and school personnel.
