Each year millions of Americans face the reality of living with a mental illness. Each year during May, the National Alliance for Mental Health (NAMI) leads a national campaign to bring awareness to mental health. We join with NAMI in our desire to fight stigma, educate the public, and provide support for those facing the challenges of mental health issues.
This year’s theme is “You Are Not Alone”. While it is completely normal to feel alone, especially in these uncertain times, we hope to provide connection that brings healing, resources that bring hope, and a tangible presence that lets you know you are not alone.
First and foremost, if you are struggling with feeling alone, isolated, depressed, anxious, stuck, or have known mental health issues, please reach out to our counseling center today to make an appointment with one of our counselors or coaches. You can reach us by phone at 435-649-2260 ext. 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
