100+ Women Who Care is a powerful group wanting to have a positive impact on those in need here in the Los Alamos area. Their mission is to reach out and help our community by collecting contributions for local non profits. Funds raised during this first set of events are going towards the Behavior Health Awareness Campaign creating awareness while working towards “normalizing” behavioral health issues and the stigma associated with treating them. A survey of the 100+ Women Who Care – Los Alamos was asked, “What topics would you most like to learn about or discuss in this group?” Over half of the members who voted selected behavioral health.
