'Love Hunt' promotes mental health & wellbeing resources in North Alabama

The Love Hunt to Feature Healthy Coping Techniques, Social Connection, and a Live Performance by Hip Hop Artist and Mental Health Advocate Dear Silas.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — 57 North Hampton and Little Orange Fish are collaborating to offer The Love Hunt, a weeklong scavenger hunt promoting mental health and wellbeing resources in North Alabama. From May 21-27, participants will visit various locations and try healthy coping techniques, like spending time outdoors and connecting with others, to earn points towards the grand prize. The event concludes with Love Hunt Live hosted in collaboration with R&B Vibes Live, featuring Dear Silas, a Hip Hop artist, Trumpeter, and Mental Health Advocate, performing his hit single, "I Ain't Stressin' Today."

The Love Hunt will feature organizations that provide mental health assistance like Thrive Alabama, but they are also partnered with local businesses that can provide mental health benefits in nontraditional ways. "The Love Hunt is all about creating a fun and engaging way for people to learn about mental health and wellbeing resources in our community," said Janna Peterson, organizer of The Love Hunt. "We're excited to offer a wide range of activities through our various partners, from traditional talk therapy to exercise and fitness, gaming and VR, and spending time outdoors. We hope that by participating in this event, and trying out different healthy coping techniques, participants will feel empowered to prioritize their mental health in ways that resonate with them and connect with others."

The Love Hunt is open to all ages and offers an opportunity for individuals, families, and groups to explore new ways of taking care of themselves and others.
