Amador County Arts Council is committed to mental health for all rural folks. This includes people in the bottom quartile of the Healthy Places Index, most specifically “non-white” and LGBTQAI2S+ youth attending our rural schools where, all-too-often, bullying and othering are embedded in local culture. This Taskforce works to support normalizing LGBTQAI2S+ lives in our rural communities through journalism, events, and advocacy for policies that support access to LGBTQAI2S+-affirming mental healthcare.

The #OUT4MentalHealth Amador Taskforce meetings monthly in Zoom on the third Wednesday at 6 PM. REGISTER here to join the zoom meetings. Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive the meeting information.

This activity is entirely funded by a grant from #OUT4MentalHealth and CAL LGBT Health and Human Services.
