Play is Healthy For Us All!
The College of San Mateo was awarded grant funding to develop CSM Cares, a program to
make CSM more caring, supportive, and inclusive.
Through this grant, CSM has been actively promoting educational events and activities to foster proactive mental health and reduce the many myths and stigmas related to mental illness that often prevent members of our community from receiving needed support
As part of our overriding mission to make CSM a more caring environment, we have invited Playfair, the leader in college play events, to host a playful, non-competitive, interactive event called Play is Healthy For Us All!
Playfair is winner of the NACA Novelty Entertainer of the Year. With more than 350 campus appearances each year and for the past 35 years, Playfair has been leading campus orientation events that run on play!
Playfair has been called "The Ultimate Icebreaker" because of their tried-and-true system of getting complete strangers to engage with others in a fun and non-competitive playful way.
