City-Parish launches Healthy BR website to provide local resources, information to community
BATON ROUGE – Medical professionals say the capital city is far from a picture of health. That’s led the city-parish to create a new website where people can find local resources and information.
Baton Rouge is one of the top 50 most stressed cities in the nation. The city and local organizations like Louisiana’s chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, or NAMI, promotes free classes and resources to change that.
NAMI is promoting mental health during National Stress Awareness month with yoga.
“We know how important it is to be able to practice mindfulness and just get out there and move your body,” NAMI Louisiana Advocacy and State Program Director Tatiana Gonzalez said.
