Yia Mas Shares a Message for Mental Health Month

NEW YORK – Yia Mas founder Kristina Headrick shared a message via email for Mental Health Month, May, thanking everyone for their support in the new initiative with Breathe Hellas which helps in creating partnerships for impact around emotional well-being, in an effort to create healthier communities.

“Thanks to you all, our initiative with Breathe Hellas (created by Tatiana Blatnik) is off to a great start,” Headrick noted. “While mental health has become buzzy on the interwebs, that shouldn’t dilute how real of an issue it is, and this cause is near and dear to our hearts.”

“Our gorgeous saltwater-scented candle supports Breathe’s efforts in Greece and will also help you find a mindful, aromatherapy-fueled moment for yourself,” Headrick said.

More information about Breathe Hellas is available online: https://www.breathehellas.com/ .
