Mental Health and Wellness Radio

Release Date: 05/29/2013

What are the activities or people in your life that gave you balance and peace of mind? Mental Health and Wellness Radio Host Jenee Darden took her recorder to the Alameda County 10x10 Walk/Move for Health for answers. 

Hear from a woman who lost 350 pounds with diet and exercise, and gained self-esteem.  And a man says his co-workers keep him well. Plus Jenee makes her hip- hop debut…sort of.

The 10x10 Wellness Campaign is a national initiative by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration or SAMHSA. People with mental health challenges live 25 years less than the general population. Their lives are cut short by preventable health issues like obesity, diabetes, HIV, etc. The goal is to increase the lifespan of mental health consumers by 10 years, within 10 years.
