We believe that by supporting those around us, providing resources and openly discussing the value of healthy life habits, we can continue to prioritize mental wellness within the organization and for our community.

When people call or text 9-8-8, they will be connected to trained counselors who are part of the existing Lifeline network and will listen, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary.
