Coping with mental health issues?
We all have times when we feel over-whelmed, frustrated, lonely, anxious of just blah. Do you know where to look for help? Many of us think of 911. Some of us call our Pastor. Some of us call our family. Sadly, some, due to trauma, will never call 911.
Well, where do we do? Who we turn to?
