Nancy Cleveland started the event with Macon Head Space to help normalize mental health issues and conversations.
MACON, Georgia – On Saturday, Macon Head Space and the Southern Center for Choice Theory at Lake Tobesofkee hosted their second pop-up mental health gym to help people relax and manage stress.
“You don’t have to go to Atlanta or Savannah, you can do it right here; and the activities I have selected are just sort of alternative ways for you to create your own space and develop your own formula around your thinking “said Nancy Cleveland.
Cleveland kicked off the event with Macon Head Space to help normalize mental health issues and conversations.
The morning started with tea at 10 a.m. and continued with yoga and poetry. It all ended with attendees creating vision boards.
Several dozen people came, including Marcus Johnson, who says he is proud to live in a city that sponsors and offers free mental health events.
“I’ve been looking forward to yoga the most because I don’t think I really have a yoga-friendly body, but it makes yoga easier for everyone; and everyone can benefit from yoga that and the drum circle because the drum circle does so much to relieve stress and anxiety, “said Johnson.
All participants also had the opportunity to speak to a therapist for free.
