Behavioral and Mental Health Resources

Just as your health and physical well being are important, your mind also matters. One in eight people are affected by diagnosable mental illness. Only one third seek help.

Know the signs to help yourself or others; pain isn’t always obvious, but most people show signs if they need help. Find the words; by understanding these signs, you can recognize if you or someone you care about needs help and support. Reach out; if you or a loved one needs help, call one of our area mental health resources listed below or the National Suicide Hotline at 1.800.273.8255.

Your support makes a difference and support is available in our community.
