Mental health resources are available.

We understand that it’s often hard to know what resources you can access when you or someone you care about needs help. Throughout the month, we will add resources below that are available to help you or someone you care about.

FREE TRAINING! Mental Health America of Northeast Indiana is hosting a free virtual training on May 26 called Mental Health 101.
