Letter to the Citizens of Selah


Citizens of Selah:

When it comes to mental illness, there is something to be said about “it takes a village”. One in five adults in the United States experience mental illness in some form each year. Even here in our hometown of Selah we have families who care for a family member or lie awake at night worrying about a family member or friend with this illness.

Life is so busy and full of uncertainties that we fail to look beyond our four walls, sometimes even within our four walls. Take some time to look up the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI) website. Learn some of the signs to look for and what you can do to be a part of the solution.
