"Shine the Light" on Mental Health & Suicide Walk & Resource Fair

Gulf Bend Center is hosting its 2023 “Shine the Light” on Mental Health & Suicide Walk & Resource Fair on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Special Events Area in Riverside Park from 8:00 am – 11:00 am. This will be a fun-filled, free event open to the community.
