On June 10th, 2017, people from the Riverwalk community from all over the world participated in a walk to promote caring communities. The aim was to create a World-Wide Circle of Care to promote communities that are open to showing support for community members in times of hardship or crisis – whether they’re struggling with a mental health issue, a family tragedy, or other difficulties. The circle is a framework for compassionate, practical, and (in some cases) professional support. Those in the Circle of Care understand negative coping strategies as an expression of a lack of adequate understanding and support, and strive towards a deeper understanding of one another and work towards creating a supportive community.
