RED BLUFF — As part of World Suicide Prevention Day, the Tehama County Health Services Agency Saturday held a Health and Fun Fair near its Walnut Street campus to teach children how to be resilient and engage with things.

Besides booths from Greenville Rancheria, Tribal health and United Way, there was jump rope and hopscotch, drumming, sidewalk chalk, rock painting, a food truck and a magician was scheduled to in the afternoon.

Health Educator Avery Vilche described herself as cautiously optimistic about people attending the event because of the heat, but families did show up to the first-time fair.

“This is better than I hoped for,” Vilche said.

Chelsea Funtanilla heard about the event from her daughter’s early Head Start teacher, who gave her a flier on it. Her son really liked these events and ate every snack there and partook in every activity other than the drawing, which he did not like that day.

“I enjoy it because I do take advantage of as many resources as I can,” Funtanilla said. “For myself, and then also just asking questions for family, friends, church community, whoever can benefit from the resources they have here.”

Funtanilla would recommend people come out to a health event because there are resources out there that not everyone knows about.

Later in the month, agency will be hosting “Stand Up to Suicide,” a walk to bring awareness to suicide and suicide prevention. It will be happening in Red Bluff, Corning and Los Molinos.

“If we can get people to come to that,” Vilche said. “That is our huge event.”

More information about the event will become available as it approaches.
