Community Connectedness and The Hype Events
Community Connecting Events
Building Hope community connectedness events
We’ve heard it in focus groups, surveys, needs assessment and from our friends over and over again.
Living in Summit County can feel very isolating at times. Add to that some long, cold winters, the fact that 70% of residences are empty second homes and the transient nature of a resort community and you’ve got a recipe for disconnection, isolation and loneliness.
Science has now demonstrated that when we lack social connections and supportive friend networks it actually impacts our mental health, physical health and life expectancy.
For these reasons, Building Hope created Community Connectedness Events.
Purpose of Connectedness Events
Through a myriad of fun, engaging, healthy and FREE activities, Building Hope Community Connectedness Events are designed to:
- Give residents an opportunity to connect with one another in meaningful and fun ways, giving attendees an opportunity to develop new relationships in healthy settings.
- Teach tips and tools that will support resident’s emotional well-being
- Talk about mental health in an open, judgment free, normalizing way, reducing stigma fear and shame around this previously stigmatized topic
- Improve awareness around local mental health resources through the circulation of materials
This event was helpful and encouraging. It’s nice to see the faces of others that may be struggling during these uncertain times. Thank you to all that put this thing together!
The HYPE events are for youth ages 12-18. These events are free and fun while providing connection and an opportunity to gain self-confidence and a stronger sense of self.
We encourage you to check out our events for yourself! Since all are free and we partner with amazing organizations, you can bet they fill up quickly.
Be sure to register in advance and check to see if it is online or in person.
