Mental Health Awareness Community Playdate

Updated: May 29, 2022

Hosted By Childhood Matters

Mark your calendars for May 28th, 2022 from 11am to 1pm and join us for a family event at the Conejo Creek North Park (Lakeside Pavilion) in Thousand Oaks, California. Children get to participate in free hands-on activities while families are able to connect with representatives from mental health organizations to hep you gather resources related to mental health.


This event could not have been possible without the support of these amazing organizations and mental health providers who have volunteered their time to bring resources to the community and for setting up amazing activities for the children. A big thank you to the Ventura County Fire Department for attending the event so that the children can see the fire trucks up close and personal.
