mental health

re:TH!NK's partners haved worked to bring together community partners to increase access to all dimensions of mental wellness that are needed for residents to live a healthy lifestyle. Because this work is so important and touches so many lives, the projects related to mental health that re:TH!NK helped create now have a regional focus, with the N.E.W. Mental Health Connection taking the lead. Visit re:TH!NK's YouTube channel for videos featuring some of re:TH!NK's past work with mental health.
