Active Minds' National Stress Out Day Perfect for autism families

On Sunday, April 19, the local chapter of Active Minds, a university student group dedicated to educating and advocating about mental health, is hosting National Stress out Day. A member of the group assured me that families in the autism community are welcome to attend.

The event will be held on the mall in front of Warriner hall (pictured above) at Central Michigan University from 1-3 p.m. Hopefully the day will be as beautiful as the day the above photo was taken. We could use some great weather about now!

About the Day as Advertised by Active Minds:

Stressed out??? This is the perfect event to help you relax, chill out, and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather!There will be fun stress relieving activities such as: massages, stress ball making (aka fidgets), bubbles, NIA dancing, caricatures drawings, sidewalk chalk, refreshments, and stress relief goody bags! Everything is FREE!! Feel free to bring friends and family!

Yes, I went. It could have been a bit warmer that day, but my little guy and I had fun. My husband and older son was at a S.O. bowling tournament.
