FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Advisory Board and Health and Human Services (HHS) for a Mental Health Awareness Flag Raising
Ceremony held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 2, 2022 at the Clint G. Quilter County Building, 1360
North Main Street, Bishop, California.
Each year, communities nationwide recognize May as Mental Health Awareness Month, helping to
raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. The “Every Mind Matters” flag
was designed by a local consumer of services using the County’s logo and the bright green associated
with mental health awareness. The flag will fly throughout the month of May in recognition of the
importance of this critical issue and as a reminder that mental health treatment is important and is just
as critical as treatment for physical illness. Together, we can create a community where everyone
feels comfortable reaching out for the support and treatment they deserve.
