Visit MPA during Mental Health Awareness at the Minnesota State Fair this summer!

Hosted by the MN State Advisory Council on Mental Health & Subcommittee on Children's Mental Health and NAMI Minnesota

Join us at the Minnesota State Fair on August 27 in Dan Patch Park! For the first time, the MN State Fair will have a dedicated day to focus on Mental Health Awareness. Visitors can explore mental health and wellness resources through inspiring stage performances, music, demonstrations, yoga, information, and much more. The event is free with fair admission and will be open from 8am-6pm.

The State Fair provides a unique opportunity to educate a very large and diverse group of people about mental health and well-being, which is important for every Minnesotan. Led by the MN State Advisory Council on Mental Health & Subcommittee on Children's Mental Health and NAMI Minnesota, over 40 organizations will participate in the day's activities.
