What better way is there to celebrate the coming of spring than with a Yard Sale? Not one sale but 6 separate Yard Sales will be hosted by Community Counseling Services! May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Community Counseling Services feels hosting Yard Sales for everyone to enjoy shopping, selling, learning about services offered and locating the Community Counseling Services facility in your community would be a great way to bring awareness to May is Mental Health Month.

“We want people to know that while mental health and substance use conditions are common, they are extremely treatable and individuals go on to recover and lead full and productive lives,” said Jackie Edwards, Executive Director of Community Counseling Services.

Edwards said too many people who are living with mental health conditions never seek or receive help due to stigma, lack of information, cost, or lack of health care insurance coverage-as high as 50 percent.

“We want to change the equation and help our families, friends and co-workers who may be reluctant to ask for help or don’t know where to find it.”

Community Counseling Services invites everyone interested in joining the Yard Sales to pack their car with items for sale and join them in one or several of the Yard Sale locations.
