Community Invited to Celebrate Wellness At Free Festival

1-in-5 Wellness Festival
(Hilton Head Is, SC – May 22, 2019) Let’s celebrate wellness and learn how to create a healthier and balanced lifestyle by attending the 1 in 5 Wellness Festival to be held on Saturday, September 14, 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., at the Shelter Cove Community Park, 39 Shelter Cove Ln, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928.
The event will have live music, food, raffles, activities for both kids and adults, yoga, well-being local resources, and much more. This is an event for all family members.
1 in 5 Wellness Festival is an initiative to bring awareness to the fact that 1 in 5 people can develop a mental illness in their lifetime. Some of these health conditions are stress, depression, anxiety, alienation and, sadly, sometimes self-harm and suicide.

“The Festival is an opportunity to showcase available local resources that promote physical and mental wellness. Mental Health America of Beaufort/ Jasper-Island House and the National Alliance of Mental Illness -NAMI Lowcountry (SC) want to help members of the community feel connected and to realize all the different opportunities in this area that can help them,” commented Jessica Bender, Executive Director at Mental Health America of Beaufort/Jasper at Island House.
Mollie Lynes Kinard, a Director of NAMI Lowcountry, suggested this event because people often overlook the importance of wellness. A balanced diet and regular exercise are basic for emotional and mental health. “The 1 in 5 Wellness Festival will increase mental health awareness through a holistic approach providing resources about arts, music, and enjoyment of all the Lowcountry has to offer,” Kinard says.
For more information and sponsorship opportunities contact Sarah Eliasoph, Executive Director NAMI Lowcountry at, (843) 681-2200. Sign up here to volunteer at the Festival.
