October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

As fall weather begins to roll in, we need to stay vigilant to the men and women who are suffering in our community due to domestic violence. 

Please reach out to a licensed counselor (LCPC) in your area if you - or someone you love - are experiencing bullying or interpersonal violence or consider contacting one of the many resources posted on our Anti-bullying/Interpersonal Violence webpage

September is National Suicide Prevention Month

At this time of COVID-19 isolation, unemployment, and difficulty, it is important for us to be attentive to suicidal thoughts and behaviors in our community.
