On Thursday August 3, 2017, from 9 am to 12 noon, The Kern County Department of Child Support Services presented its 8th annual Health and Wellness Fair. An estimated, over 4000 individuals endured the sweltering heat and humidity to come out to the fairgrounds where their children were able to obtain free haircuts, free immunizations, free backpacks and so much more.
There were dozens of booths speckled across the lawn with a wide variety of businesses who were eager to distribute an abundance of goodies to all in attendance. As a compassionate and caring member of the Kern County Community, Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital wanted to make sure they did their part to help all those families in Kern County that need a little bit of extra help in preparation for the new school year. It is said that it takes a village to raise a child, and we believe that here in Kern County we truly have the best village there is.
We will always come together to help one another and raise each other up. It is that same true compassion and desire to help the Community that propels us at BBHH constantly forward, seeking out new ways to offer Mental Health and Chemical Dependency programs to all who are in need of them.
It is an exciting time at Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital as we are getting ready to launch our Partial Hospitalization Program for adults and will be launching our Adolescent Intensive Outpatient program by the end of the year. In everyone’s path in life, there are often times stones in the road that may stumble us, if you or someone you know needs help picking themselves back up, or maybe even finding their path again, we at Bakersfield Behavioral Healthcare Hospital are here to help guide you!
