Garden of the Mind event shows “The Little Things” for mental health


Panhandle PBS put on a Garden of the Mind event to help people learn some “Little Things” that can be done for their mental health on Saturday. Different stations were set up at Amarillo College to bring awareness to things that can be done for someone’s mental health.

Colorful chalk surrounded a chalkboard at the Garden of the Mind event Saturday.  The board allowed attendees to write their feelings for others to see, so people know they're not alone.

Panhandle PBS has a new series called “The Little Things” that aired its first episode on Sept. 15. According to a Panhandle PBS news release, “The Little Things” will be an eight-part series produced by Panhandle PBS in partnership with Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance and Texas Panhandle Centers Behavioral and Developmental Health. The Garden of the Mind event took the same teachings from “The Little Things” and made different tents to check out.

“Getting outside in nature, exercise, food, connection, and creativity are all amazing ways to improve your mental health,” said Corby Fails, marketing manager at Panhandle PBS.
