Intro Take Care of You Initiative Flyer - March 2020

Now to ensure our younger generations and their families are educated on mental health and the resources available for those in need, we are excited to announce our Take Care of You Initiative.

In partnership with youth, we meaningfully engage them in the program incorporating mental health promotional activities in schools.

This initiative increases the conversation of mental health awareness and empowerment to ensure our younger generations and their families are educated on mental health and resources (See below for Teen Mental Health Resources).

For more information and to get involved, please see the contact information below.
