Celebrate Pride, Health & Happiness


This quarter, Uprise Health is focusing on mental health and pride.

Mental health is more than the absence of a mental illness – it’s essential to your overall health and quality of life. It includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.

We all deserve the right to live genuinely, completely and honestly. For the LGBTQAI+ community, we know people come out at all ages and stages of life and it’s a significant part of living in their identity publicly. Uprise Health is here to support and provide you with resources in how to navigate a coming out and how you can support the LGBTQAI+ community.
