Stress, anxiety and depression are conditions that occur to all of us at various times. Yet, there is stigma attached to discussing mental health.
Here 2 Help is a community-based coalition with a mission of helping improve awareness and understanding of mental health issues through education, basic skills training and resource information and to help break down barriers that prevent people from seeking care.
Here 2 Help coalition members include: the Westfield United Fund; Youth & Family Counseling Service; Contact We Care; Imagine; Prevention Links; UCPC Behavioral Healthcare; Westfield Public Health; Westfield Senior Housing; the Westfield Public School Guidance Department as well as clergy members and other volunteers.
A resource sheet has been developed. Click Here For More Info.
Youth Mental Health First Aid training will be available at the Y this fall. Please see our events listing on this website or call the Y for details.
