BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — CityServe partnered with Dignity Health and Kern Behavioral Health and Recovery Services for a new event to provide mental and physical health resources.
The Here for Health Pit Stop took place Thursday at 3201 F St. It included booths offering resources on mental health, substance abuse and local services, free health screenings as well as food boxes for the first 200 families who attend.
“There is an absolute need for events like this in our community. Although businesses and services are starting to open back up, COVID has caused a lot of suffering and trauma for individuals who may have never experienced mental health concerns,” said KernBHRS Director Stacy Kuwahara.
“Let’s help people that need this help and be accessible to them and love on them, and really be able to meet their needs,” CityServe leader Robin Robinson said.
