Today we remember those who have given of themselves for our country.
We reflect on the blessing of liberty and the sacrifices that keep us free.
We reflect on those special people - our veterans.
Thank you for your service.
Happy Veterans Day!
There is no shame in asking for help. Mental Illness Awareness Week - October 4-10, 2020.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness, (NAMI) has a great website that gives access to tools, tests and mental health information. A resource is their Know the Warning Signs page. Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness each year. It’s important to know there is hope and those who suffer are not alone.
Tiffany Markwood, LCSW, and Molly Tahmaseb, LCSW, of Winchester Medical Center's Outpatient Behavioral Health Services, met with Janet Michael, on The River 95.3, to provide tips to listeners on coping with COVID's mental health challenges.
