Mental health is an integral part of our overall health, and includes our emotional, psychological and social well-being. In conjunction with the start of mental health awareness month, parents, caregivers and educators invited to a workshop, “Let’s Talk About Mental Health.” Open to parents from King Philip, Norfolk, Plainville and Wrentham schools and the surrounding area, this workshop will be presented by the Mental Health Collaborative, a local organization dedicated to ending stigma by improving mental health literacy across communities to support a preventative versus crisis based approach of education and awareness. Please join us on May 2nd!
