OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Owensboro Public Schools hosted a wellness night for mental health on Thursday.

The event took place at the Owensboro Innovation Campus on South Griffith Avenue.

The community wellness night was free and open to the public.

The event had activities for kids, resources for mental health and parent engagement, as well as community partners on site.

Leaders said they wanted parents to have an opportunity to learn wellness techniques as well as learn more about what services are available in the community.

OPS District Mental Health Coordinator Summer Bell said this was the second time they had held such an event.

“This year we wanted to expand it, and just based on the registration alone, we had 90 families that registered,” she said. “So to me, that’s a need that families want to know what services are out there.”

Each family will also receive a free pizza voucher and a wellness kit to take home with them.
