Let’s celebrate Mental Health Month with Mental Health America! Each year, MHA releases a toolkit loaded with resources, practical tips and helpful worksheets that everyone can use to help improve their mental health and increase resiliency, regardless of the situations they are dealing with – and this year is no different! The 2021 toolkit explores coping with big changes, recognizing trauma, and building resiliency. While the complete toolkit is available by signing up with MHA, we’ve extracted three key sections for easier access. Be sure to check them out for #tools2thrive!

Updated June 10, 2021: While state guidelines are now relaxing, protecting clients and staff continues to be our highest priority. We will no longer be requesting temperature and exposure screenings at the door. However, due to the size of our therapy rooms, hallways and waiting areas, we continue to require masks be worn by everyone upon entering Family Guidance Center suites. Above all else, we ask that anyone entering our facilities continues to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. If you are not feeling well or have suspected or confirmed exposure, do not come in the building and please reschedule your appointment by calling (610) 374-4963. Face-to-face sessions have resumed on a limited basis and telehealth options remain available at this time. If you have a scheduled telehealth appointment, please arrange for child care during your session time. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding with the ever-changing situation.
