Event description
A speaker from the VBSPCA joins us to shine a light on the important role pets can play in our mental and emotional health.

About this Event

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, the Virginia Beach SPCA has teamed up with NAMI of Coastal Virginia to shine a light on the important role pets play in our mental and emotional well-being. Over 50 million people are affected by mental illness in the United States, and many people turned to their furry friends as the pandemic brought forth feelings of loneliness, depression, and anxiety. While pets are not a replacement for professional medical treatment, the companionship they provide can bring unique benefits to help improve the lives of those dealing with mental illness.

Please join in supporting those who battle mental illness, and help us shine a light on the importance of support, education, advocacy, and...pets.
