On Saturday, May 14, 2016, Colusa County Behavioral Health and Safe Haven co-hosted its first car show to raise awareness for Military Veteran Mental Health Issues. Approximately 33 vehicles were on display as veterans and mental health experts discussed mental health issues.
“We wanted to host an event to say ‘Thank You’ to our veterans, and to reach out to them and raise awareness about the mental health issues our veterans face and the resources available to them,” said Senaida Rangel, Colusa County Department of Behavioral Health, MHSA Coordinator.
Lunch was prepared by the Colusa Lions Club, and various donated items were raffled off.
“This is a great event, and Safe Haven did a great job,” said Colusa car enthusiast, Dick Armacido.
