Grantee Spotlight for #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth πŸ”¦ Josselyn Center, a nonprofit community mental health provider in Lake County 🏘

Impact Story:
β€œJoey, a teenager, was experiencing not only the stresses of school, friends and trying to find his place in the world, but also the added weight of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on his daily life and community around him.

At first, he was hesitant to begin mental health services. But because Josselyn was able to respond quickly and not allow time to lapse after Joey’s courage to reach out, Joey quickly connected with one of our professional staff.

After sessions together, Joey and his Josselyn provider were able to work as a team. Joey was able to open up and dig deep, sharing the very real concerns in his life. The therapist was able to provide encouragement and tools to address the rising emotions and resulting anxiety.

Joey wrote an email to the therapist and said, β€˜I wanted to thank you for all your help. It means a lot to me that you had helped when I was lost and confused and most importantly scared. You helped me so much, you impacted my life in a positive way. Thank you for showing me how special I am and helping me cope with my anxiety. I will never forget you and your caring self.'"

Thank you, Josselyn Center for the critical and life-saving work you are providing our Lake County neighbors!! Learn more about the Josselyn Center here:
