Capital Area Human Services Executive Director Jan Laughinghouse, PhD, LCSW-BACS, LAC, (pictured center) was a featured panelist at a mental health wellness event, held Feb. 10, at the LSU Student Union.

The event was held in recognition of Black History Month and focused on the importance of health and wellness in the Black community with an emphasis on mental health, self-care, nutrition, and community resources.

Professional counselors, healthcare workers, graduate students, and undergraduate students attended the program and engaged in a dialogue that focused on mindfulness and healing.

CAHS Prevention Coordinator Dawn Chanet Collins and Prevention Project Coordinator Ricki (Davis) Robinson staffed an information table about CAHS’ services. Louisiana Spirit Program Manager Rosalyn Augustus also visited with attendees about crisis services available to those impacted by COVID- 19 and Hurricane Ida.

Special thanks to LSU’s office of Multicultural Affairs and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for inviting CAHS to participate.
