Normalizing the Mental Health Narrative within the Community

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Michelle E. Dickinson. I am new here. I just wanted to publicly thank Jessica Campbell of Jersey City Public Library and share the following with you. Jessica invited me to her library to share my mental health story and some resilience tips. Given that 1 in 3 are now suffering with either depression or anxiety post COVID, I am so grateful that she knew the value of hosting this important conversation for the community. Here is the link in case you are interested.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58lfUFTlHlE . <o:p></o:p>

    I am sharing this because I am interested in supporting your mental health conversations. If I can offer you my support, please let me know. <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p> </o:p>

    Thank you kindly. Please take good care of yourselves.   <o:p></o:p>

    Warmly,<o:p></o:p>
