The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month and this show serves as part of our initiative to raise awareness about the importance of balancing mental health in conjunction with physical health to achieve well-being.  This month’s episode is titled: Advocating for NCSS Services: A first person account.       

Did you know that 1 in 5 people in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties will experience a mental health challenge during their lifetime?  Do you also realize the significant increase in substance abuse in our two-county area? Anxiety, depression, suicide, and self-injury are also prevalent mental health disorders. In addition, for many, the result of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought incredible disruption to everyday life. Although stigma remains a barrier for many to seek treatment those who do can achieve satisfying results that change their lives.

Today on the show my guest is one of those individuals that has found the services and supports that NCSS provides can make a difference. To discuss how NCSS has made a difference in their life I’m pleased to introduce this month’s guest, Justyce, a Mental Health Advocate.
