Today is #NationalStressAwarenessDay! It's normal to experience stress from time to time, but if you're feeling stressed more often than not, it may be time to find help outside of coping tools.

You may find these coping tools helpful, but they're not the only ways to reduce levels of immediate stress. Find other stress management methods here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/what-matters-most/201701/10-new-strategies-stress-management

Congratulations to our President/CEO Marni Stahlman on her appointment, by the Orange County Board of County Commissioners, to the Health Council of East Central Florida. In 1982, the Florida Legislature created the Local Health Planning Councils to be the premier choice for health care research, program development, and evaluation services to improve population health in Florida. There are 11 councils providing services across Florida. East Central Florida includes Brevard, Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.

Trans children—especially trans girls—are under attack through H.B 1475 which recently passed the FL House. A similar bill is now onto the FL Senate. The bill bans trans children from playing in school sport teams that reflect their gender identities. It’s important as a community to fight against transphobia individually and systemically. We urge the Florida Senate to vote no on this terrible bill. If you are an LGBTQ+ youth in need of support, know that you are loved and we have resources to help. Please contact the MHACF at 407-898-0110
