Public Health Bulletin
Thanks to our collaboration with Nicole Rossetti, a social worker originally from Garfield, we have been able to compile a list of resources for those that may need help with their addiction as well as their mental health in general. Mental health has become a priority during these times when so much change has occurred in less than a year, so do not feel afraid to reach out for help. Helping yourself helps those around you.
