As part of our long-term goals, El Paso United FRC is focused on increasing the understanding of mental health by providing education on the signs of trauma-induced stress in themselves and others as well as removing the stigma surrounding mental illnesses.
UNITED & RESILIENT is designed to have honest conversations with local leaders, mental health specialists, and fellow El Pasoans who share their heartfelt stories and expertise.
Join us on the journey to long-term recovery as we begin to define what healing looks like for us - both as a community and as individuals.
