I appreciate the “public service announcement” in last week’s Star newspaper concerning sexual abuse and information about available hotlines and help.
Since not everyone, especially teens, seniors and those with special needs, is able to travel 50 or more miles to receive emergency or ongoing care for their mental health issues, what, if any, services are available closer to home?
I realize our community sits in extreme corners of several counties and that it’s difficult for our hospital to persuade medical professionals to work in our area, but I believe a person’s mental and emotional health are as important as their physical health.
What resources are available locally?
