Upcoming Events

  • Just by people getting help, that doesn’t make you weak. I think, ‘I can’t deal with my problems, that makes me a weak man.’ But I stepped outside of myself to look at my problems, and got help. Now, I’m fine. I love my life. It can make you stronger by getting help.

  • Mental illness doesn’t have a cover. There’s not a set picture for it.

  • You can get through it. Focus on the positive. Find that one positive thing to focus on, even with so much negative around it.

  • We are opening and continuing conversations about suicide prevention and other essential resources for residents of Lorain County.
