A message from our Executive Director

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and now more than ever it is so important to recognize the need to reduce stigma around mental illness and provide support to those in need of help. Throughout the month, we will be adding resources and links here, including weekly virtual presentations that we have created for the Children’s Health Matters campaign. Please be sure to visit our website throughout the month of May as these presentations will include children’s activity ideas, book and movie suggestions, and so much more!
