We are excited to announce the launch of our much-anticipated Pink Bows Safe Space™ in July at our first outdoor event. This initiative strives to continue our core mission of promoting stronger safety protocols, while providing safe spaces for attendees at events.
Pink Bows Safe Spaces are intended to provide a safe and supportive environment for individuals that are feeling overwhelmed or possibly dealing with anxiety, depression or other challenges, including just needing a break from the noise or chaos. Our safe spaces will be supported and staffed with licensed mental health counselors and volunteers, while providing a location to take deep calming breaths, sit in a quiet spot, listen to relaxing music, and allowing individuals to refocus and regenerate. This will provide attendees a space to enter and feel at ease, knowing they are out of any emotional or physical harm.
First Aid areas are typically available at events, but they are not equipped to handle many of the issues specific to mental health. In fact, a study conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) found that only 29% of first aid providers felt confident in their ability to handle mental health related issues. This is where Pink Bows Safe Space™ come in and make an impact.
The Foundation’s goal is to be forward-thinking and a leader in an area that is currently under- served and, in most cases, not being addressed properly. Pink Bows Safe Spaces will create a culture that provides awareness and support for mental health related issues at events, while increasing safety aspects and benefits that have not been previously offered to attendees.
As Pink Bows Foundation continues to broaden partnerships to implement Pink Bows Safe Spaces at more events, the ultimate goal is to increase adoption across venues, stadiums and arenas so that all events offer a safe space, just as first aid is provided for physical and health related issues.
Pink Bows Foundation will strategically grow to host events and fundraising efforts beginning in the near future. Please continue to support and follow our social media accounts on FB and IG - @PinkBowsFoundation for updates.
