Many of us would never hesitate to help someone in need. As a community we provide support, arrange meal trains and offer assistance. Would you know what to do if someone confided in you that they were struggling with a mental heath condition?
Mental illness is often referred to as the no-casserole illness. Yet, connection is so vital to recovery, providing hope and compassion is so essential to healing.  Learn how to recognize the signs and be a support for yourself and others.
