MolinaCares Youth Festival Supports Mental Health for Florida Families

The Molina Healthcare Charitable Foundation, in conjunction with Molina Healthcare of Florida and in partnership with the Federation of Families of Central Florida, welcomed families to the MolinaCares Youth Festival at Cypress Grove Park in Orlando. The event focused on supporting the growing number of young people and families affected by mental illness.

This year, through a $15,000 grant from the Foundation, the Federation of Families of Central Florida is hosting monthly group meeting for teens and young adults centered on improving mental health. In those meetings, participants engage in activities and listen to speakers, while being encouraged to find creative outlets as part of the healing process.

The youth festival, also funded by the grant, featured musical performances, poetry and other forms of entertainment from group attendees. It also included games, food, arts and crafts, prizes, and mental health resources.
