May 1-5: Screen-Free Week Programs

April 26, 2023

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Parks and recreation are vital to mental health and well-being. 

The Park District of Highland Park is proud to join the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to raise awareness about mental health.

To kick-off the month, turn off your screen and turn on LIFE! Screen-Free Week is celebrated every year in the first week of May. This week, celebrated all over the world, is an invitation for everyone — children, adults, and entire communities — to switch off completely from staring at screens and take a well-deserved break. We are offering a variety of events this week.
