Women United Lunch and Learn

Thank you to those who joined us for Coffee and Conversations on October 12 to celebrate the impact of our newest initiative, Mental Health First Aid: United in Heart and Mind. With the increased focus on mental health in our community, we were honored to have Crystal Fuller, Senior Manager of Prevention Services, Region Six Behavioral Health, share about the implementation and impact of Mental Health First Aid.

You can learn more about the impact of Mental Health First Aid and see a video from the event in this week’s Community Connection blog post.
