The program is a Healthway funded initiative through not-for-profit Act Belong Commit.

An Act Belong Commit spokesperson said they encourage students to take action, join a group and commit to a mission. 

Mayor Rhys Williams said the Wearable Arts showcase was about more than the gala event.

“It is about community connections, capacity building and in this case, raising awareness of mental health and the importance of the principals behind Act Belong Commit,” he said.
