Happy New Year everyone!
We want to start the New Year on the right foot by packing this first blog post full of Mental Health Resources! In 2019, Within Dunn County 11% of the population reported frequent Mental Health distress (you can read more about this here). Our goal is to give the Dunn County community the tools it needs to reduce that number or help alleviate some of the symptoms related to this distress.
