Mental Health Month: Community Answers Provides More Than A Bookmark

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 8.51.03 PMMay 1 marked the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Month.

“I was surprised to learn nearly one in five Connecticut adults experienced some form of mental illness last year, and each year in our nation, more than 35,000 people lose their lives to suicide,” said Juanita James, President and CEO of Fairfield County Community Foundation.

Just in time for Mental Health Awareness Month, Community Answers, housed inside Greenwich Library, announced its 8th “Know Your Town Card: Mental Health and Addiction Services.” For those searching for answers, Community Answers should be their first stop. They make recommendations and connections over the phone and via email. If they don’t immediately have an answer, they will get right back to you. Their paramount goal is to connect residents to the information and service they need.
