Help us continue to provide community support and services.

I enjoyed the Moscow Mental Health Walk last month. Some very brave people came forward to talk about their mental health crisis’s in the hopes it will help someone else. A lot of the time, the conversation about mental health comes back to a lack of care. But we can’t resource our way out of this problem. We need to support community efforts early on – before crisis happens. Parents, teachers, coaches, and young people need to collaborate. “There comes a point where we need to stop pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they are falling in.” – Desmond Tutu.

Studies are beginning to come back that social connection is the key. Building an environment where everyone feels connected in their community can build individual strength. I know I want to work towards that!

QUOTES TO MAKE YOU THINK!

“Everyone you meet always asks if you have a career, are married, or own a house, as if life was some kind of grocery list.

But no one ever asks if you are happy.” ~Heath Ledger, 1979-2008
