Mosaic in Western Iowa

The month of May brought many things ... flowers, warm weather and most importantly, Mental Health Awareness Month. In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, Mosaic in Council Bluffs, local businesses and organizations participated in the Embrace Campaign.

Utilizing Facebook, the Embrace Campaign coupled Mosaic's Mission Statement (Embracing God's call to serve in the world, Mosaic advocates for people with intellectual disabilities and provides opportunities for them to enjoy a full life) with pictures of community members embracing the people we serve who live with mental illness.

Employees from US Bank, Super Saver, The Council Bluffs Fire Department and Council Bluffs Mayor Matt Walsh all participated. It was a true testament to the character of the Council Bluffs community and a wonderful way to create more awareness about mental health.
