Vibrant Emotional Health Expo


According to a 2023 White House report on the state of mental health in the U.S., “Our nation is facing a mental health crisis among people of all ages, and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made these problems worse.”

As part of an inaugural effort to help address these issues at the local level, the Smithfield Rotary Club is planning a Vibrant Emotional Health Expo on May 13th at the Smithfield Center located at 220 N Church Street Smithfield, VA. From 6:00-8:00 p.m.

The goals of the Expo support Rotary International’s theme for 2024 of “Creating Hope.” It will focus on Awareness and Care of Mind, Body and Soul in the following areas: Happiness over Depression, Freedom over Addiction, Joy over Grief, Strength over Pain, and Stability over Financial Stress.

The intent is to connect IOW County citizens to providers and organizations that can provide aid, support, and knowledge about creating positive emotional health. The Expo will be organized to enable the participants to move freely among the vendors to gain insights and advice.

The event is free. The Smithfield Rotary Club strongly encourages the general public to attend this interactive event and for interested organizations to share their expertise with the attending citizens of Isle of Wight and surrounding counties.
