We pause today to proudly honor and pay tribute to all the living and fallen veterans who have served their country in the U.S. armed services. We salute you and all the veterans of the U.S. armed services who have given so much - past and present - active duty, reserve, honorably discharged and retired service members.
It’s National Health Center Week and each day, we will focus on aspects of what this nation's community health centers do to care for the people they serve. Here you can read about the various daily focus topics and also tune in here for upcoming video interviews with CHC staff.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Millions of people are affected by mental illness each year. In fact, 1 in 5 U.S adults experience mental illness, and approximately 17% of youth (ages 6-17 years) live with a mental health disorder. It's important to raise awareness of those living with mental or behavioral health issues and to help reduce the stigma that many people experience and to point them toward getting help.
