Save the date May 30, 2020

On Saturday, May 25, 2019, 158 runners and walkers met at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Guilford to participate in the 2nd Annual Tracy’s 5K Run & Health Walk that was hosted by the Women & Family Life Center (W&FLC) and Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital. The race is named after Tracy, a PhD student and an avid runner who loved running through the rain and used exercise to cope with the challenges she had with mental illness. Tracy’s Run symbolizes the fact that mental illness can happen to anyone, regardless of intelligence, background or character. Both W&FLC and the Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital are dedicated to educating people, creating community support, and reducing the stigma for individuals who struggle with mental health issues, their families and friends. For both W&FLC and Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital, this is a way to create a community dialogue to talk about mental health and reduce the stigma associated with it.
