Monthly Health & Wellness Spotlight

Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation has a commitment to provide health and wellness resources and opportunities to all populations here in Caddo Parish. We highlight a health awareness topic each month to provide educational and nutritional information to keep the community informed about ways to stay fit and healthy. 

This month we are spotlighting Mental Health.

Take a proactive approach to your mental health and well-being! 

Each month we feature select National Health Observances that align with our mission to improve health across the United States. In April we’re raising awareness about the importance of mental health screening. To make it easy for you to help us spread the word, we’ve pulled together some resources below that you can use to promote these NHOs.
