Over the past few months, there has been one word that I keep coming back to when I think about weathering this COVID-19 storm: Grit. Having grit means being courageous, having endurance and being resilient. This community has grit. We don’t succumb to hardships. We stand up, dust ourselves off and lean on those closest to us for support as we push forward. At both the individual and community level, we are strong.
Wyandot Behavioral Health Network has received a $215,000 grant from Wyandotte Health Foundation to continue the work of a program that supports grassroots efforts to help communities prevent and heal from trauma. This marks the second consecutive year that the Foundation has awarded its Cross-Sector Collaboration grant to the program Alive & Thrive Wyandotte County.
As Mental Health Month draws to a close, we want to share one final Wyandot BHN Warrior with you. Gaby is part of our Supported Employment team and has continued to help individuals with persistent mental illness seek employment during the pandemic.
