Thank A Mental Health Worker During Mental Health Awareness Month


One in five people live with a mental health condition. Chances are you or someone you know has been affected. Franklin County mental health workers provide support, therapy and treatment for a variety of mental health conditions to keep our residents' emotional, psychological and social well-being healthy. Their expertise and knowledge have always been critical to the health of a community but are even more so now during the COVID-19 crisis.  

The Healthy Franklin County Behavioral Health Task Force is recognizing the importance of mental health workers during the month of May, which is Mental Health Awareness Month. Nominees will be recognized on the Healthy Franklin County Facebook page throughout the month of May. Recognizing the role of mental health workers is important to shining a light on the great work that they do but also creates more awareness of workforce opportunities in the mental health field while highlighting resources available in Franklin County.
